GodelTech is to implement a virtual learning portal for the NHS. The online system will help NHS employees from across the country to receive high quality Masters training whilst continuing their professional careers by studying at their own convenience.

Aimed specifically at health care professionals working in the field of major incident response, the new Masters course, MSc Health Incident Command, is being organised by the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM), in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University and the Department of Health.

Terry Bland, managing director of Godel Technologies commented: “We are delighted to have been involved in such a worthwhile project.  Using virtual learning environment technology enables a national rollout of on–the–job training for this new qualification. Paramedics and doctors from any location can complete the course, receiving fantastic training that fits in with their busy professional careers.  Ultimately, by enabling widespread high level learning, the online portal will help the NHS to save more lives.”

GodelTech, who specialise in NHS contracts, won this latest project after completing a similar Sharepoint intranet portal, which was used to train staff at UHSM.

Dr David Macklin, educational research fellow at UHSM commented:

“We have a good long term working relationship with Godel Technologies and it is fantastic to see that their systems will, yet again, be able to support the NHS’ educational needs.  The virtual learning environment implemented by Godel will enable health care professionals working in the field of major incident response to take part in this Masters level programme whilst continuing their normal work, which will be of great benefit to the NHS.”
