University uses InfoBasis software to help standardise training

Anglia Ruskin, the Cambridge and Chelmsford based University, is to implement InfoBasis Enterprise Skills Manager to help it standardise IT staff training and development for its 100 strong IT workforce.

Training provider QA-IQ has provided Anglia Ruskin University with learning content mapped to Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). The company also provided consultancy support in specifying job roles for the staff.

Ajay Burlingham-Böhr, director of IT strategy and systems at Anglia Ruskin University, said: "We wanted to move away from the non-standardised method of tracking employees' career paths and training. We needed to ensure all of our IT professionals have the same benefits of developing, enhancing, and monitoring their skills and talent, and that their development is in line with our corporate strategy and their job roles.

"Our IT staff deserve to have industry standard training across the organisation, and with the combined expertise of InfoBasis and QA-IQ, we plan to make this a reality."

Lisa Watts, Account Manager at QA-IQ, added: "Training is more effective when it's closely matched to the requirements of the individual and their job role. By establishing a strong structure for this learning programme Anglia Ruskin University will provide its staff with significant benefits and ensure that new skills are immediately applied in the workplace."

InfoBasis CEO Ashley Wheaton commented: "Anglia Ruskin's decision to use InfoBasis ESM shows a great commitment to the evolution of training and development across the organisation and recognition of the benefits of optimising the resource pool."
