Welcome to The Vocational Academy’s Staff Training Platform

Hello and a warm welcome to The Vocational Academy’s dedicated training platform! We are thrilled to have you on board and are confident that this platform will serve as an invaluable resource throughout your journey with us.

Your Commitment to Continuous Professional Development (CPD):
From day one, one of the commitments we share is the obligation and passion towards Continuous Professional Development. It’s not just a buzzword here; it’s part of our ethos. You were provided with a CPD log during your induction. If you haven’t done so already, now is a good time to familiarize yourself with it. Remember, this log is your key to documenting and reflecting on your ongoing learning and progress.

A Gateway to Knowledge:
This platform is not merely a starting point for our new family members to understand the nitty-gritty of The Vocational Academy, like who’s who and insights about our various systems such as SharePoint, the LearnDash online platform, Onefile, Aptem, and more. While these foundational elements are crucial, the platform is much, much more.

You’ll discover an ever-evolving library of courses here โ€“ some CPD certified, others developed internally for specific roles like tutors and operational staff. Whether you’re seeking to dive deep into the philosophy of inclusive learning, or just brushing up on the latest operational protocol, we’ve got you covered.

Engaging & Collaborative Learning:
Our vision is an engaging and dynamic one. Not only will we be regularly updating this platform with fresh courses, but we also encourage you, our talented team members, to contribute. Got a skill or knowledge area you’d like to share? Feel free to design and add your mini-courses! This is a collaborative space where we all grow together.

Linking Out to the Wider World:
While our internal resources are vast, we recognize the richness of learning from diverse sources. So, donโ€™t be surprised to find links to external courses that align with our mission and vision. Itโ€™s all about broadening our horizons and staying at the cutting edge of educational innovation.

The Vocational Academy thrives on a culture of continuous learning and collaboration. This platform is a testament to that ethos. Dive in, explore, learn, contribute, and together, let’s make our Academy an epitome of excellence in vocational education!

Warm regards,

Michael Rickards

Director and CEO
