How can colleges and training providers use flexible technology to track the learner journey and monitor outcomes?
We have worked for 3 years in conjunction with colleges and training providers to develop an agile software solution specifically for skills and employability training providers . The solution addresses the challenges of modern day provision and reporting.
Workpepper (the product) was built upon a platform originally developed for the DWP; this platform has now been customised in conjunction with colleges and training providers to address the need for a low cost and agile delivery management solution.
Research has evidenced that Government funded training poses many common delivery challenges, to mention a few:
- Learner engagement,
- Referral tracking,
- Communication with referral agents,
- Destination tracking,
- Data security and compliance.
With the increased Government focus on ‘outcome responsive curriculum’ funding will follow the learner journey, however recent a AoC survey 71% of colleges sited that tracking learner progress and outcomes was a key barrier.
Gloucestershire College (part of the Gazelle colleges group) was one of the colleges who worked in conjunction with Macleod Associates to ensure Workpepper delivers commented: “It has now proven an invaluable asset that has enabled scalability and reduced cost of delivery”- Angela de Gandy, Employability Manager.
Key benefits that Workpepper offers further education colleges include:
- Track Interventions: the ability to track clients from referral to employment
- IAP: Improved planning and monitoring of the IAP (individual Action Plan)
- Room Utilisation & Allocation: Simplified course scheduling and resource allocation
- Reporting: Accurate real-time forecasting and simplified contract reporting
- Service Offered: Additional learner benefits and a better service offered by the college
- Secure: Compliance and data security
