Mobile first

Maximising Engagement

Bud’s interface is designed for accessibility, it’s simple and intuitive to empower and motivate learners. With an app for iPhone, android or tablet Bud gives learners easy access to their learning plan at any time, in any place and on their terms – increasing engagement, improving success rates. Learners and trainers can message within Bud so that all communications, events and feedback are captured, and an audit trail is automatically created for Ofsted, showing naturally occurring teaching, and learner stretch and challenge.

Skills assessment

Demonstrating progress

Bud’s Skillscan allows you to measure a learner’s start point at enrolment, track progress throughout, demonstrate distance travelled and recognise readiness for EPA, whilst measuring how activities have impacted learning. Learner and trainer can instantly see exactly where they are on programme by viewing percentage complete. Progress reviews can be scheduled, remote or face to face, with evidence captured by digital signature after the event. Bud enables trainers to RAG (Red, Amber, Green) rate learners, so that management can instantly see through reporting, who’s on track and who’s not.

Learning plan

Enabling Learning

Bud gives learners full visibility of their learning plan from any device so that they can access activities whenever they wish. This gives learners control so that they can progress, submit work and complete activities at their preferred pace.

“During lockdown, if we hadn’t had Bud we would be in a much more difficult position, we have been able to continue delivery to our learners remotely…If we were still on the old systems we would have really struggled to do any remote work. During lockdown we’ve actually had a growth in numbers and life has been a little bit easier. I’m thankful we’ve been able to keep on top of delivering training and maintaining our income.”

Managing

Consistent, Performance, Quality

workflows

Driving consistency

Bud’s unique workflows are designed by our in-house industry experts, to drive best-practice for every action – reducing administrative error, improving data quality, minimising compliance errors and reducing risk to your business. Your users can’t go wrong with Bud because trainers and learners must enter all the information required to meet compliance regulations before they can complete a stage.

Data warehouse

Powering business intelligence

Bud captures thousands of pieces of data from every learner every day and feeds it into Bud’s data warehouse which can be integrated with your preferred reporting tool, so that you can build reports to measure performance. This real-time business intelligence gives you a complete view of every aspect of your organisations performance, including learner progress, so you can identify those who are falling behind, investigate why and take action to improve learner outcomes.

Programmes

Ensuring quality training

Bud’s Programme Design Suite ensures your training is delivered at a consistently high level by every trainer to every learner. With predefined programmes you can define your core curriculum demonstrating ‘Intent, Implementation and Impact’ so that you are always Ofsted ready. Either upload your pre-existing programmes into Bud or use our ‘off the shelf’ programmes to help you get started – both solutions allow you to add trainer instructions and resources, and standardise your delivery. Bud provides a rich learning environment and enables learners to launch your SCORM content with one click, so that their learning experience is as seamless as possible.

Funding

Compliance, Evidence, Enrolment

Compliance

Reducing administration

During enrolment, Bud automatically generates the Individual Learner Record in real time, reducing administrative burden, minimising error, improving accuracy. Updates to the ILR are automatically recorded throughout the learning journey – so you can be sure your evidence matches your ESFA funding claim.

Evidence

Driving compliance

Throughout their training programme Bud automatically collates evidence of every interaction and learning experience, so that you can be confident in your claims for funding, including those for Additional Learning Support.

Enrolment

Capturing enrolment

Whether you prefer your learners to self-serve their information remotely or your trainers to manage the process, Bud ensures all required data – including Skillscan to identify a learners starting point – is captured at enrolment supporting your compliance. With remote or face to face ID checking, and digital signatures from learner, employer and trainer automatically recorded, you can be sure the correct evidence is on file.
