Municipalities and provinces

Lifelong learning in the local government sector

Knowledge for now and later

The local government sector is changing rapidly. Municipalities are being assigned more and more government tasks and additional responsibilities: youth care, for example, but also – partly due to the coronavirus crisis – safety and communication. To be able to carry out these additional tasks as a local government organisation, you have to give your employees the right knowledge and skills, now and in the future.

This is a challenge for HR managers, Learning & Development advisers and Organisational Development advisers. After all, how do you go from ad hoc solutions to a structural training policy, while the workload on staff continues to increase?

Improve the employability of your employees

With Studytube’s learning platform, you can make your employees versatile. This creates a dynamic work environment, in which you can take care of all additional tasks with the help of employees who can quickly acquire the right knowledge and skills. 

  • A specific online training library for the local government sector, where your employees can access the (mandatory) knowledge they need now and in the future. Some examples include “Preparing for the Environment Act”, “Writing policy and advisory reports”, “Government participation” and “Problem-oriented work”.
  • Onboarding training courses that you can easily create yourself with our authoring tool and automatically assign to employees, so they can get started straightaway with the right knowledge.
  • The LMS gives you real-time insight into your employees' learning activities. You can also manage all your course libraries over there. As a result, you can be sure that all training courses contribute to both your own development and the organisational objectives.
  • Employees are in charge of their own development and can independently manage their Personal Training Budget (PTB). The LMS gives your organisation insight into those processes, so you can make adjustments (if necessary).

Government library

Organising learning efficiently

Studytube provides enormous time savings and ease in the organisation of your learning policy. By streamlining and automating all processes, the administrative burden disappears. Planning courses, communicating about the available trainings, requesting reports and managing learning budgets: it all becomes a piece of cake.

  • Qualification management, including storing and uploading certificates such as GDPR and ERO, automatic requests for recertification, and direct links between all certificates and your current staff system.
  • Reports and overviews that give you insight into who has attended which training courses, and who has obtained which certificates.
  • The organisation of internal and external training courses, including all related communication, is automated via the platform – from sending invitations to rescheduling courses and generating customised certificates.

Local governments constantly have to respond to changes. Discover today how Studytube can help you with that.
