E-learning readiness toolkit

The e-learning readiness toolkit is a self assessment and improvement resource that has been made available to the NHS. The toolkit provides easy to use benchmarking tools, as well as advice, guidance and resources that will allow NHS organisations to independently review and enhance their e-learning capability.

Resources available through the e-learning readiness toolkit

The toolkit provides the NHS with access to a wide variety of resources and opportunities, these include:

  • an e-learning tool that enables local organisations to perform an independent assessment of the maturity of their e-learning provision
  • e-learning maturity reports that can be printed and shared with other NHS organisations
  • benchmarking so that progression and improvement can be measured
  • access to recommended e-learning standards
  • NHS case studies and examples of existing work
  • a platform for the sharing of best practice
  • networking for the NHS training and e-learning communities.

Benefits of the e-learning readiness toolkit

NHS staff need to be trained in a wide variety of new systems and services. E-learning is proving to be a key tool for ensuring that NHS staff are suitably trained before any new IT system is implemented.

The e-learning readiness toolkit provides NHS e-learning developers, trainers and training managers with everything they need in order to measure the maturity of the e-learning provision within their organisation. Once this has been benchmarked, the toolkit provides access to all of the information, resources, guidance and contacts that any NHS organisation will require to improve their e-learning capability in the future.
