Rapid e-learning for Government Connect GCSx

govconnect-logo1It seems that the Government Connect GCSx programme is something many of you are thinking about at the moment, not least because of the looming deadline of April 1st . 

From that date the internet and postal based solutions for transferring data that currently exist will be phased out in favour of the Government Connect network so the time available for training staff in the changes is now quite tight. 

Did you know that, once your authority is up and running with the Government Connect programme, complying with the Code of Connection is a statutory requirement?

Find out more about this, and how your Learning Pool subscription can save you time and money with your Government Connect training needs by coming along to our Government Connect event on Tuesday 10th March in Bristol. 

With over 40 people signed up to attend our Government Connect event on Tuesday 10th March in Bristol we’re looking forward to what’s promising to be a great event.

The event is designed to help councils get up to speed on their Government Connect training and will showcase the e-learning already created by Loraine Slinn, Plymouth City Council. 

Jos Tama and Simon Green will be sharing the stage with Loraine to showcase the e-learning solutions they have created to solve their Government Connect training needs.  Plus we will also be joined by Simon Fisher from the Government Connect programme.

As part of the session we’re also giving you the opportunity to ask the panel anything at all about the topics covered, or their take on anything e-learning.  What would you ask?  Please let us know – the harder the better (sorry panelists!).

We’ll be finishing the session with a light lunch, giving you a great opportunity for you to network with your fellow Learning Pool colleagues and find out what they’re up to with their e-learning. 

We’ve still got some places left so to book yours please visit our website or call 0207 101 9383 and ask for Emily.

    I have been given the task within Knowsley Council to gather information on existing Gov connect e-learning training content.

    Would you be able to guide me to the correct area on this site where I can look at the training packages available
