Workpepper has been featured in a new Jisc RSC case study highlighting the effective use of technology by further education colleges.

Jisc Regional Support Centres work with more than 2,000 UK learning providers helping them use technology to improve performance and efficiency. In a series of case studies Jisc RSC highlight best practice in e-learning and technology amongst their UK learning providers.

We are pleased to announce that our Workpepper learner management system has been chosen to be featured in this!

The study looks at how Gloucestershire College has significantly increased the attendance of students involved in their work programme by deploying our intuitive learning management system (LMS). Since the Workpepper LMS has been in place student attendance at their sector-based work academies has risen from 50% to 80%.
