Implementing a strong LMS and E-Learning programme for Your Trust Rochdale

We supplied a range of training opportunities for the team at Your Trust Rochdale and deployed our Flex LMS after discovering they did not currently use an LMS to monitor training. They have seen their staff uptake and completion rate significantly increase since we implemented the changes to their L&D training plan.

Implementing a strong LMS and E-Learning programme for Your Trust Rochdale

We supplied a range of training opportunities for the team at Your Trust Rochdale and deployed our Flex LMS after discovering they did not currently use an LMS to monitor training. They have seen their staff uptake and completion rate significantly increase since we implemented the changes to their L&D training plan.

The Opportunity

Your Trust Rochdale approached us with two objectives: 

1. Apply a better method of recording and monitoring training that was taking place, not just online but face to face.

2. Offer a broader range of training opportunities to the Your Trust Team. 

After years of using excel spreadsheets and folders as their primary way of monitoring their team’s training, Your Trust decided the time had come to implement a more efficient system that fit their organisation’s needs. They were keen to have access to a simple-to-use, central training records storage product.  

They also wanted to give their staff who had no access to work systems and who worked shifts, weekends or had other roles or commitments and therefore couldn’t easily attend standard face-to-face sessions or have easy access to training.  

So, through recommendation by GM Active, Your Trust came to us to gain accessible training courses for their staff and help with developing an overall L&D and E-learning re-model. 

The Solution

Flex LMS

 

After demonstrating our unique learner management system, Flex, to Your Trust, they could see the various benefits it would present to their organisation. They were especially pleased to finally have an easy-to-access online system where staff could gain entry to all their training, in addition to the management team having a far better location to store online training records.  

Flex is now well embedded across all seven of Your Trust’s sites, with employees and management reaping the benefits. Both staff uptake of training and the completion rate has increased massively since Flex was deployed and this has helped to improve the overall impact of L&D in their organisation.  

Supplying E-Learning suitable to a wide range of staff

Your Trust chose to deploy a selection of our E-learning courses across their organisation. This included both our mandatory and essential training and several other training courses. The 100% online aspect perfectly conquered the challenge they faced of many of their staff not being able to attend in-person sessions. The implementation of Flex has also allowed staff to access their training courses from anywhere, which stripped the issue they had of the employees who could not complete training due to conflicting work schedules.  

Moreover, as Your Trust are one of the GM Active member organisations, they were provided with the training courses we designed in partnership with GM Active. This included the GM Skills Academy and The Transformational Leadership Programme. Since Your Trust had now begun using Flex (the training base for these courses), all team members were now able to access and complete these courses.
