Maximise your vocational training delivery
A single platform for all of your training
The best platform for every user
For managers, trainers, learners and employers, Bud’s interface is designed to enhance the experience of every user. In fact, Bud is so intuitive that our customers have reported their users are up and running faster than on any other platform they’ve experienced – meaning they can spend more time improving learner outcomes.
At Bud we understand the complexities involved in managing a training provision, we know the business issues that keep you awake at night, that’s why our platform gives you full visibility of your training delivery.
Bud is an end to end system designed around workflows that drive compliance – which means your users have to provide evidence at every stage, they cannot go wrong.
Bud collects data from thousands of points every day, it’s stored in our data warehouse to provide a single source of truth which you can access via your preferred business intelligence dashboard, giving you a clear overview of your business whenever you need it.
Bud is built to streamline the entire enrolment process. By enabling learners to ‘self-serve’ their enrolment remotely – including completing their initial assessments in Maths and English – the administrative burden is reduced for trainers and the risk of errors minimised.
Throughout every learner’s programme, Bud dynamically generates a centralised evidence pack so that you can confidently claim your funding – including for additional learning support.
We believe that trainers should focus on what they do best – training.
That’s why Bud is designed to be intuitive to use and to deliver exactly what your trainers need, reducing their administrative time, improving efficiencies and their overall delivery.
Trainers, employers and learners communicate through Bud via instant messaging or their preferred method e.g. Zoom or Teams, knowing that Bud will keep a record of every action and automatically save meeting dates, links, reminders and notifications, meaning trainers can be sure their learners are engaged.
Measuring and tracking learner progress is easy with Bud – with its own skills assessment tool built-in, learners are measured at the beginning of their learning journey and SEN’s identified at the outset are flagged within the system. The progress of every learner is tracked overtime, and the impact of each activity recorded.
Bud enables trainers to see early on where learners are making slow progress, giving them the opportunity to apply interventions before it’s too late.
Managing and delivering vocational training is a huge commitment for an employer, which is why you need to be sure that the process will be smooth, and that you won’t be burdened with any unnecessary requirements.
Bud ensures the best possible experience for all users; HR mangers, trainers, and learners, simplifying the whole process, reducing administration, and providing clarity at every stage.
Learning at work
When learners are in the work-place they need to be adding value whilst completing their tasks. With Bud learners can collect evidence with minimal disruption to their daily routine, uploading photographs or comments directly from their smartphone and checking their next steps, keeping on top of their learning without leaving the ‘shop floor’.
Learners find that they can take an active role in their training right from the start with Bud, helping them feel empowered and motivated, ultimately driving success. Learners can access curriculum content, communicate with their trainer and upload their work and evidence from their smartphone, tablet or computer.
Learners will find Bud’s interface easy to use, meaning less excuses for incomplete tasks, and less complaints during teaching sessions and reviews – which in turn makes life easier for your trainers, and improves completion rates.
