Project Workstreams

FRSLearn: Description

  • Workstream description – A web platform that enables the sharing and collaboration on learning materials, initially focussing on e-learning but expanding to encompass learning materials in any format. The site is aimed at Learning and Development Managers to implement the materials within their FRS rather than being available directly to staff.
  • Progress – FRSLearn has been live since 2017 but has continued to be developed and the repository of materials broadened. The core functionality is now in place and the site has been launched. The project is now considering maintenance arrangements for the site.
  • Delivery date – Complete with maintenance arrangements TBC

This will enable FRSs to procure different solutions that best match their requirements.
  • Progress – The project has carried out some early market engagement and established a Virtual Reality Working Group who will help shape the scope of the specification.
