Online Learning Centre

"The National eLEarning Project is an exciting and innovative project that brings a broad spectrum of online learning experiences to all staff in the Irish Health Services. Because of the challenges posed by the project, from a technical and Learning and Development point of view, we needed a partner who would work in collaboration with us, and we found that with Aurion. Each member of the Aurion team brings a unique expertise to the initiative, and a willingness to share knowledge and skills.This is a winning formula, and has in no small way contributed to the success of the National eLearning project.

We're glad to have them on board. "

Pat Kenny, Health Service Executive

The Challenge

The Irish Health Service is currently undergoing the most extensive reform programme in over 30 years. The delivery of quality patient-centred services requires a renewed focus on education, training and development in the health sector. Investment in education, training and development should be primarily focused on and integrated with improved service provision and enhanced patient care.

Training and Development must help each health service employee with the ability to improve how work is done. It was recognised that while there was evidence of good practice within a range of health boards and agencies, there was need to re-model the approach to education, training and development to one that is more strategic and available nationally to all health service employees.

The Aurion solution

Aurion worked with The Health Service Executive to develop a framework for corporate learning to bring the benefits of a standard, best-practice approach to Learning & Development to all Irish Health Service employees. The 'Learning Centre' is a unique easy to use online Learning Centre comprising of four key areas:
