Bastow Partner Wins AwardGenos International, in partnership with Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership, has received a Highly Commended award at the recent Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD) National Training Excellence Awards.

The award was for Genos’ submission to the Blended Learning Category for their work on the 2010 Bastow module - Developing Self.

The Bastow Developing Self module utilised emotional intelligence as the key construct for helping participants to begin a deeper and more profound understanding of self. With participants spread across the state of Victoria, blended learning solutions were deemed critical to program success. 

The six-month course included 360 assessment, classroom learning, one-on-one (face-to-face) coaching sessions, virtual group coaching, and a technology-based online collaborative learning platform ( that provided self-paced learning and skills reinforcement. This unique combination of learning experiences was a great success, resulting in significant increases in the emotional intelligence of a majority of participants and independent course evaluation ratings that indicated high levels of satisfaction, achievement of program expectations, and demonstration of learning back in the school.

The competition in this category included finalists from Westpac, Honda, Hudson, Talent2, Red Balloon, A&G Training Services, Linked Training, AMP and the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.

The Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD) National Training Excellence Awards recognise outstanding excellence in learning and development and in organisational development.
