Cost Improvements

  • Reduction in trainer costs by expanding eLearning offering.
  • Eradicate the duplication of training through the portable training record, via IAT.
  • Reduction in Learning Administrators workload due to ability for employees to self-enrol.
  • Reduction in development costs for creating and maintaining local content, due to over 800 national e-Learning courses being available.
  • Reduction in centralised reporting by using the Self Service Portlets and manager dashboards.
  • Reduction or eradication of the input of paper registers by introducing and devolving the Attendance Portlet. 

Service Improvements

  • Reduced on-boarding time.
  • Supporting the national streamlining programme to reduce on-boarding time, avoiding duplication and enabling staff to provide patient care sooner.

  3. Is your training content up to date to meet the latest regulations?

  4. Does your training schedule respond to the training needs of your workforce that varies throughout the year?

  5. Are you nurturing your workforce to work responsively, in a range of settings, and across organisational and professional boundaries?
