Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust employs Knowledgepool to underpin accredited management development

Customised e-Learning programme

KnowledgePool, the worldwide learning solutions provider has customised a suite of its management skills courses for Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust. Provided as four CD-ROMs and covering eleven courses each of which corresponds to a specific section of Grampian’s management development programme and is mapped to the learning outcomes of the Institute of Leadership and Management Certificate in Management.

KnowledgePool has designed the courses to reflect the Trust’s corporate identity and branding and included customised learner feedback forms which will enable Grampian’s training department to evaluate the effectiveness and reception of the programme. Topics covered include:

  • Managing information
  • Managing people
  • Managing resources
  • Managing services

Grampian’s management development programme was created to provide the relevant resources and expertise to direct and support all levels of management within the Trust towards its strategic goals. e-Learning is a valuable learning method used widely within the Trust providing a highly accessible and flexible means of study for individuals whose work patterns are very variable and demanding. KnowledgePool’s Management Skills Online portfolio covers a comprehensive range of management; communication; personal; financial; literacy and business skills. Each course lasts about 90 minutes and all are browser based for easy integration into standard networks and corporate intranets. All courses support occupational standards and qualifications such as Management NVQs; Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative; and Investors in People

“Of all the companies we have worked with to develop e-Learning, KnowledgePool have been the most flexible to our needs. We gave them our competencies, and they did all the work of mapping their materials against them. The package KnowledgePool has delivered can be used as part of an accredited management development programme or for stand-alone personal development in the areas of people, resource and information management.”
