10. WORK-BASED LEARNING
A student completing a WBL program needs quick mobile access to their course details, progress, attendance, and the location of where they’ll be working. They need to be able to communicate with trainers, employers, and course administrators to resolve any issues.
A modern SMS should include a feature to capture the student’s work while they’re doing it, in the form of photos, videos, and notes, all taken from a mobile phone app, and saved to the system as proof of the student’s competency.
Easy management of trainer competency is a must, your SMS should allow you to:
- Trainers can capture evidence of work-based learning, as the work is being completed
- Track the status and progress of students, their courses, assessments, units and work placements
- Easily change or cancel work placements and send notifications to all involved parties
- Produce timely reports on work placement attendance and outcomes
