OGC Gateway Review Workshops
The following portfolio of training and workshops are available via Xafinity Skillbase.
OGC Gateway awareness module
The workshop will be run by an accredited OGC Gateway facilitator or an experienced DGC and can be tailor-made to the specific Department. For all workshops there would be a pre-event discussion between the facilitator and Department to understand the Department background and specific needs.
"Preparing to carry out OGC Gateway Review" workshops
This one-day training course has been developed to prepare individuals to be able to participate as Review Team Members in OGC Gateway Reviews. Xafinity Skillbase handle all the logistical, administrative and preparatory activities for each training course as well as providing an accredited facilitator to run the training. The training is run in partnership with either a representative from the OGC Gateway team or a Departmental Gateway Coordinator.
Review Team Leader masterclass
The Review Team Leader Masterclass has been designed to update and enhance the effectiveness of current OGC Gateway Review Team Leaders (RTL"s) who have led at least one Medium or High Risk Gateway Review. It provides an opportunity not only to familiarise RTL"s on strategy and recent developments, but also as a network opportunity. It is a requirement that all RTL"s attend the one-day Masterclass every 18 months and invitations will be sent out by Xafinity Skillbase.
Review Team Member to Leader workshop
The M2L Workshop has been designed for experienced OGC Gateway Review Team Members who are prospective Review Team Leaders of high and medium risk OGC Gateway Review teams. The design is based on the expectation that delegates will previously have attended the workshop: "Preparing to carry Out an OGC Gateway Review" and will have been a Review Team Member on at least one OGC Gateway Review.
