e2train provides MLE to Strategic Health Authority

Avon, Gloucestershire & Wiltshire Strategic Health Authority has selected e2train to supply its new managed learning environment (MLE) across all of the authority's 25 NHS Trusts, taking in some 65,000 staff.

The system comprises the Kallidus Learning Management System, Performance module and Learning Content Management System, together with Centra's Virtual Classroom System.

With its new MLE, the authority is aiming to provide those working in health and social care in Avon, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire with a complete view of all their training plans with learning history, course information and classroom management tools available on a single web portal.

The authority is also expecting its training staff, content authors and subject matter experts to manage and create e-learning content using the system's collaboration and workflow tools to streamline the processes.

Sally Hernando, assistant director of quality, at the Avon, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Workforce Development Confederation said; "Our new learning environment will provide a complete collaborative learning community for all our staff in Avon, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

"Access to all components will be through the Internet. That means we will now be able to access information on classroom courses, download e-learning and take part in virtual classroom sessions in any location with Internet access.

"One of our key objectives will be to develop web-based learning communities where learners with similar needs, who are otherwise widely dispersed, can come together on-line and support each other through the learning process.

"For trainers and managers, the system means that we will now be able choose the kind of learning - be it e-learning, classroom or virtual classroom - that most suits our requirements, improving efficiency and value for money. Equally importantly, we will be using the system to track progress and knowledge gained to assess and enhance job competencies, linking to the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework, and helping us to deliver Standards for Better Healthcare."

e2train says the MLE will be integrated over time with the NHS Electronic Staff Records system (ESR).

The system is expected to roll out in a phased implementation during the next six months.
