Train to Gain skills brokers use Epic e-learning

Epic is working with the Learning and Skills Council on a project to develop e-learning and resource materials for use by Train to Gain skills brokers.

Case studies and simulations have been developed to help skills brokers prepare themselves for assessment and help themselves become licenced Skills Brokers with Train to Gain.

Train to Gain aims to encourage businesses and individuals to value and realise the benefits that learning and skills can bring and to invest appropriately.

The cornerstone of Train to Gain is the free skills brokerage service that aims to match training needs with training providers and ensure that training is delivered to meet employer's needs.

Carole Overton, programme manager at the Learning and Skills Network (LSN) said: "The Learning and Skills Council commissioned LSN to manage this project and LSN chose Epic to work with on the e-learning development.

"The partnership has proved to be an effective one with Epic and LSN working together as a team to enable delivery of an effective e-learning package to assist skills brokers in attaining the Skills Broker Standard.

"Skills brokers themselves have been involved right from the start ensuring that the content of the package is realistic. There has also been close liaison with LSC ensuring that we have an e-learning support that is fit for purpose."
