Mail Boxes Etc (MBE) has launched its eLearning platform programme, MBE Academy consisting of short, interactive sessions introducing ship and pack services to the Australian market.
This is an enterprise based training program, which MBE says is engaging, relevant and useful in terms of providing tangible business outcomes with a specific emphasis on growing the pack and ship opportunity identified.
The programme provides franchisees with training that is cost effective, convenient, flexible and does not take them or their employees out of the business for extended periods of time.

Learners have the convenience of accessing training courses on their computer or mobile device. Learners are rewarded with Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for successfully accomplishing the various learning milestones, as well as certificates of accomplishment. MBE recognises CPD achievements at their National Conference with an annual CPD award for individuals in the network who embrace these learning opportunities.
Clayton Treloar, CEO, MBE Australia says, “In addition to the pack and ship areas, the MBE Academy will train franchisees in sales management skills to turn their business into proactive sales centres. They will also become more efficient and productive managers, adding value to the work performed.”
In addition to the MBE Academy, all new MBE franchisees undergo a comprehensive six-week training program, regular training webinars and centre visits.
MBE Australia was successful in its funding application to the Australian Government in procuring an Industry Skills Fund grant. The programme was the only financial support available for non-accredited training in Australia. MBE were one of the last organisations to be approved for funding before the program ended in December 2016.
