The Glass & Glazing Federation has chosen Moodle as the basis for delivering its online training programme.
Moodle has more than 213million users and by organisations including the Open University, London School of Economics and Microsoft.
The GGF is working with GQA Qualifications and training partners Total Support Training, to deliver its Skilled Pathways Scheme to provide the next generation of skilled workers for the glazing and glass processing sectors.
With Moodle now in place, the platform will be used to deliver a number of existing NVQ assessment modules as well as 41 modules in development, that will provide up-to-date information on technical, health, safety environmental and behavioural practices etc.
The system can be accessed by mobile, PC, Mac or tablet providing the trainee with the opportunity to use it while travelling to and from their workplace or site, for example.
GGF chief development officer Anda Gregory said: “The GGF is providing its most ambitious training and skills development programme ever and we needed a platform that would allow us to deliver this successfully but in ways that allowed flexibility to the trainees and their employers and for us to reach as many individuals and as quickly as possible. Moodle is perfect for that.”
