Learning Academies for Global Healthcare

escalla help create world-class learning academies for organisations across the world.

Through skills and technology, we grow new and developing roles and facilitate new ways of working to transform healthcare organisations.

By bringing together effective subject matter expertise, skills analysis, delivery platforms and technology, Learning Academies can deliver measurable and sustainable benefits. Our flexible approach means we can work with the best partners and deliver learning content to meet specific needs.

Trackable and management-led strategies then ensure that the goals of the organisation are always focused on and met.

How we help create world-class learning academies:

1. Identify learner needs, design effective

Effective learning begins with end-user and organisational needs – then addressing them. How we achieve this:

  • Effective training needs analysis (role and skills analysis).
  • Analysis of current vs effective future state.
  • Role-specific learning paths.
  • Modular learning, media and teaching innovation.
  • Strategic planning aligned to organisational vision and performance.
  • Real-time performance data monitoring.
  • Mobile-friendly appraisal, revalidation and continual professional development (CPD).

2. Link world-leading experts to create and curate content

We are continually bringing together a collection of world-class subject matter expertise.

  • The result is engaging and thought-leading content, woven deeply into our comprehensive curriculum.
  • Our healthcare partners include Royal colleges, hospitals and universities.

3. Deliver and track learning via an online platform

Data and information management during learning co-ordination and delivery plays a major role in the success of our Academies. Ongoing monitoring and validation of new skills or systems means transformation outcomes are measurable from day one. A few ways we deliver and track learning:

  • Multi-platform delivery: including classroom, webinar, e-learning, self-study and work-based assessment.
  • Online scheduling, hosting, deploying, tracking and CPD appraisal processes.
  • Hosting regularly updated content on the Cortex central learning platform – available across all trusts and departments.
