Ideas and strategies behind some of our most successful and ongoing training and design...

Technology Capability TNA

In 2019, ELS completed a technology capability TNA for a UK Government department. The analysis identified ‘technology skills’ gaps among policy makers in relation to new and emerging technologies across policy areas.

ELS conducted an analysis of current training and educational levels among the target audience to identify any over training as well as gaps in knowledge capability. ELS, with a partner organisation, developed a toolkit to provide civil servants with the means to self-assess their learning needs. The analysis considered knowledge and skills covering technologies such as digital communications, distributed power networks, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, quantum technology, augmented and virtual reality, big data and high performance computers, energy technology and autonomous systems.

Remotely Controlled Vehicle (RCV) Capability

From 2018 and ongoing, ELS are designing courses and ongoing training delivery for UK remote controlled vehicle (RCV) capability.

A US original equipment manufacturer (OEM) company selected ELS to identify, design, and subsequently deliver UK MOD JSP 822 Defence Direction and Guidance for Training and Education compliant train the operator, and train the maintainer courses.

The courses have, and still are delivered at a number of locations throughout the UK.

UK Government Department Commercial Professionalisation Programme

ELS were selected by a UK government training organisation for a four years contract as their main external training design and delivery provider.

This multiyear contract covers a range of bespoke training audience led and formal acceptance training tasks across commercial and contract management skills improvement requirements. ELS developed and delivered courseware at awareness, practitioner and expert levels. ELS deliver these courses throughout the UK and in some instances, required to source the training locations as well to ensure they are suited to effective training. ELS provide all courseware, instructional resources and select our facilitators from a wide body of suitably qualified and experienced persons (SQEP).

A large UK commercial organisation selected ELS to conduct training needs analysis (TNA). The TNA in particular focused on determining the skills gaps of defence and civil service personnel in the use of specific to role commercial software.

The analysis concluded that a range of training delivery options were required for the TNA identified light and heavy user training audience of around 5000 personnel. ELS were subsequently selected to improve upon the face-to-face training as well as develop the online learning tool within Sharepoint.
