VQManager was designed for the European market and is a very powerful system that differs from most Moodle-derived resources in a number of ways, including:
- The ability to handle not just one qualification, but a ‘framework’ of qualifications per learner.
- It has an ‘app’ which runs on Apple and Android devices – allowing tutors to work off-line on their mobile devices.
- A remote facility that allows students to send ‘evidence of competency’ directly into their e-portfolio from their mobile phones.
- Various access rights for people in different roles, including Student, Tutor (Assessor), trainee Tutor (trainee Assessor), Internal Standards Verifier, Employer, Provider’s Centre Administrator and the Awarding Organisation’s Standards Verifier. Each role is provided with a different interface, and a different range of reports.
- Assessment / Activity plans – it’s easy for Tutors, or Centres, to create pre-defined assessment plans, and to pre-map these plans against their intended criteria within the learner’s qualification(s).
- ‘Genius’ – as an assessment centre works with VQManager, it ‘learns’ and starts to suggest criteria that a particular piece of evidence might hit. This is particularly helpful to Assessors and can result in students completing their qualifications more quickly.
- Plus… many other unique features.
VQManager is used daily by a large number of Further Education Colleges, Private Training Providers and elements of the National Health Service (NHS). It is one of the very few systems to have received formal accreditation for Awarding Organisations such as Edexcel and City and Guilds.
Two years ago SkillWise appointed an agent in South Africa. SkillWise would now like to do the same in Australia. We’d like to identify an organisation within Australia which is currently providing solutions into the training/qualifications market, to establish a partnership with unique rights to VQManager within the territory.
