Instructus Skills E-Learning Portal Launched
By: Skills CFA
From 1 May the Instructus Skills online ERR workbook was launched via the new Instructus Skills e-learning portal – elearning.instructus.org
The new e-learning portal hosts resources such as PLTS mapping, standards and qualification documents. It is also the home of new online Instructus Skills Employee Rights & Responsibilities workbook, and Instructus Skills ERR Model Answerbook for Providers and Assessors.
How it works
For use of the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook both the provider and learner will need to register for the e-learning portal. We advise the provider registers and sets up their account first.
Providers can purchase access to the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook via the ‘Workbooks’ page, here you can purchase learner access to the workbook by any quantity you require, at £5 per learner or workbook.
Once the learner has been approved by the provider they may access and download resources paid for by the provider. The learner can then complete the Instructus Skills ERR workbook from their own computer. Once the learner has completed the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook they can upload this onto the ‘Upload Workbook’ page, the provider will receive a notification when this action has taken place.
The provider who receives the notification email can now review and assess learner’s Instructus Skills ERR workbook and approve or fail the Instructus Skills ERR workbook submission. The learner will receive notification of the outcome of their submission. The learner can resubmit the workbook as many times as required until they pass at no additional cost.
The ‘Student Workbooks’ page will document all learner submissions and status changes will be time stamped on the e-learning portal.
As of 1 May the Skills CFA ERR workbook was removed from the Skills CFA website. If you have any saved copies of the Skills CFA ERR workbook these will still be valid to use. Learners who were registered on their apprenticeship before 1 May will still be able to complete the Skills CFA ERR workbook. After 1 May the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook will be available on the new e-learning portal, learners commencing their apprenticeship on or after 1 May should complete the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook; however there will be a dual running period whereby learners commencing their apprenticeships on or after 1 May can also complete the Skills CFA workbook up until 30 June 2015.
There is no time limit for completion or cut-off date for learners signing their declaration form for those completing the Skills CFA ERR workbook.
The e-learning portal is free to register for, however the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook will be priced at £5 per learner. As the provider you may purchase as many copies as you require for your learners. When purchasing a copy it will be in the form of a credit, therefore 1 credit = £5, when a learner downloads the ERR workbook through their own login a single credit will be deducted from your account. You can therefore choose to purchase on a pay as you go basis or multi-buy. We have also developed an Instructus Skills ERR Model Answerbook to accompany the online Instructus Skills ERR workbook, this is priced at £30 and can be purchased just once.
Payment will be made through the portal by card.
If contact us about a license agreement if you have over 200 apprentice learners per annum using the ERR workbook.
