Dovenest deliver high quality leadership and management programmes for large companies around the UK. A traditional company, they have always prided themselves on excellent delivery. With the Government’s apprenticeship levy changes, a lot of their clients were keen to adopt programmes within this scheme. Dovenest created level 3 and 5 programmes with ILM qualifications to meet this need. Under the revised apprenticeship framework, providers were asked to register with the ESFA and then subject to OFSTED inspections and delivery reviews. It was for this reason, Dovenest decided they needed to be able evidence their delivery.
Having looked at existing solutions on the market, Dovenest found they were either overly complex for their needs or did not tick all the boxes they needed. We worked with their delivery teams to understand how programmes are currently delivered. The aim from the outset was to make the whole apprenticeship journey as engaging and “joined up” for all parties involved (learner, trainer and employer). We produced a tool which allowed learners to login and interact with their programme – from reviewing upcoming content, submitting portfolio entries, engaging with trainers and fellow learners and monitoring progress.
