Serco had identified a knowledge gap in one of its premier market places. It wanted to achieve a greater understanding of the skills that were required by UK businesses, and the training programmes being provided by central government to create a new generation of workers with those skills.
Elastacloud created a learning platform called Checksy. People with ambitions to train for particular professions can visit the platform and enter details including their age and postal code.
They can then discover training courses in their area, and also access a Funding Finder that will show them whether or not financial support is available to help them afford the cost of those courses.
Our contribution was to build the technology that gathered in the data and presented it on a platform that showcased the relevant information for its users.
Serco took delivery of the Checksy learning platform in 2022. It represents a significant step forward in empowering people to find employment through developing the skills they need on funded training courses in their area.
Large numbers of future workers have used the platform to access the funding they need to be able to hone their skills and find fulfilling employment with the help of Serco.
Serco is a leading provider of public services. It derives most of its annual income of more than £4billion as a contractor for the provision of Government services.
