A great system to manage training and development
An LMS is a great tool to keep track of the learning and development by monitoring the training their care staff have completed. This is made easy because all their e-Learning is completed online, there is typically no paperwork with easy to access certificates.
Within LMS software there will be a range of reports which allow your care organisation to get real-time data on learning progress, and allowing admins and managers to produce compliance reports when needed.
Care Staff engagement and empowerment
An LMS needs to allow your staff to access their learning whenever they like, on any device, seamlessly. An innovative, intuitive system can provide your team with the tools to take ownership of their own learning by letting them choose a time that suits them.
We believe that a good design and User Experience helps provide a stronger level of user engagement. Your LMS needs to understand that there will be different user types such as Administrators, Managers and learners. Each user type will utilise the system differently, making it quick and efficient when completing tasks relevant to each user.
Blended Learning and Bespoke LMS
Blended Learning within an LMS is another key benefit that is plays an important role when it comes to streamlining learning and development in your organisation. Some LMS’ will provide eLearning course uploaders so that bespoke courses can be added alongside internal documents and policies for staff to read and sign.
A LMS can automate various tasks when it comes to Learning and Development. Whilst this is great, it is worth noting that many LMS’ can integrate with other systems, allowing you to manage difference areas of your Care Home in one place.
This helps to completely digitalise any organisation within social care and deliver long-term benefits of succession planning and empowering your workforce.
