Skillsoft Maps Learning Solutions to Australian Federal and State Government Capability Frameworks

5 December 2012

Skillsoft announced it has mapped its learning solutions to the Australian Public Service Integrated Leadership System (APS ILS) framework and State Government frameworks. Government sector customers are now able to utilise the mapping of Skillsoft's online learning assets to the APS ILS framework and State frameworks to cost-effectively build capability in critical business areas. Skillsoft is an innovative pioneer in the field of learning who provides cloud-based learning solutions for its customers worldwide.

The extensive mapping to the APS ILS and State Capability frameworks has been provided at no charge to enable government customers to obtain more learning for less spend at a time of reduced funding; improve learning and development engagement within the business through targeted programs; deliver learning in a sustainable way; and align learning to key business objectives with measurable results.

The ILS is made up of five core capability clusters and contains guides and tools to assist in professional development, capability planning and agency succession management.  The State Government frameworks vary, and have been equally catered for.

According to Skillsoft Asia Pacific's Vice President and Managing Director, Glenn Nott, the streamlined and comprehensive mapping tool developed by Skillsoft enables customers to develop learning programs which are targeted, measureable and quantifiable all fundamental elements in determining the true value and ROI for online learning.

"Skillsoft mapping will also keep costs down by reducing the duplication of learning purchases and cost avoidance of expensive ILT and associated costs," he said.

"The ultimate objective for this unique mapping of Skillsoft assets to the APS ILS and other frameworks is the ability for each organisation or business unit to create a targeted and aligned learning program, specific to their needs, which will reduce learning costs by providing more learning for less spend.
