The ODPM’s LRD contains the Department’s learning resources and, thanks to Argonaut™, everyone who accesses the LRD is certain to receive the latest, approved version of the materials s/he requires.

Neil Lasher, managing director of Trainer1, explained: “It is vital that, as new versions of policies, procedures and protocols automatically supersede old ones, everyone who accesses these, accesses the most up-to-date, ‘approved’ version. Argonaut™, Trainer1’s ‘.NET’ technology knowledge management tool ensures that this is so – thus bringing peace of mind to trainers, senior managers and, of course, learners.

“Moreover, it helps to increase worker efficiency and productivity, thus providing better value for the taxpayer."

Trainer1 has undertaken this contract working as an associate with the Faraday Partnership - which helps organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors to design their futures and develop their people through executive coaching, strategic in-house consultancy support and modular development programmes.

The Faraday Partnership’s Elizabeth Lovius commented: “The ODPM, which has a responsibility for training the 2,000 or so staff within the central Government departmental offices based in the regions around the country, asked the Faraday Partnership to help provide the most effective range of learning materials as well as delivery methods for that learning.

“Our research led us to conclude that there should be a blended approach where ‘structured’ learning is concerned – that is, a mixture of classroom-based and e-learning. We also recognised a need to provide workflow learning materials – which led to the development of the LRD.

“Essentially, the LRD is a portal to learning materials that are not presented formally, via a classroom or even an e-learning course. It is both a directory of learning resources and a library containing information, checklists and other tools that show learners how to do what they need to do in their jobs.

“So far – and, impressively for such a new concept in learning - the user feedback has been positive,” she added.

They will also be told which related materials previous users have also viewed – to help them with their continuing professional development (CPD). The system also contains reports on each user and, as each piece of material is accessed, the system adds that to the individual user’s profile – which provides accurate, on-going and regularly up-dated proof of their CPD record.
