eCom Scotland helps The HR Booth deliver as a Kickstart Gateway

By: Bob Little PR
DUNFERMLINE, Scotland - Feb. 23, 2021 - PRLog -- The HR Booth – a member of the 'Friends of eCom' collaboration initiative - has been appointed a Kickstart Gateway, under the UK Government's initiative to create job placements for 16 to 24 year-olds who are on Universal Credit. As a Kickstart Gateway, The HR Booth will be supporting employers with the Kickstart programme, working in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Job Centre Plus, as well as providing employability training for those young people on the scheme that it administers.

This training covers a range of subjects including CV writing, application forms, interview skills, communication skills, work ethics, confidence and time management. The HR Booth intends to deliver this training via a mix of eLearning modules and Microsoft Teams – which, as a Friend of eCom, is where it's seeking support from the digital learning and assessment specialist, eCom Scotland.

So, to help the HR Booth provide some relevant digital eLearning resources to complement the Kickstart programme online, as part of a journey to satisfy the required deliverables, eCom ( is providing eLearning content within its learning management system (LMS), eNetLearn, to provide guided learning pathways for learners.

"In the past, this sort of learning would have taken place in the classroom," said eCom's Emma Dickson. "Our joint vision – with The HR Booth – for this project is a blended approach to delivery, housed in eCom's eNetLearn LMS platform which can deliver interactive and accessible online learning modules, online classrooms/webinars, task outlines and supporting documents and mixed media.

"The LMS can make content available to learners as part of a singular course or within a wider programme containing a range of multimedia learning materials," Emma continued. "eNetLearn will provide the infrastructure for this programme's digital delivery while providing the management information required to evaluate the impact of learners' progress and engagement as the project matures."

Alistair Booth, Managing Director of The HR Booth, said, "We already have a great relationship with eCom and, when it came to developing our employability training programme, I shared my vision with the eCom team. We've worked together to produce our e-learning modules."

"Friends of eCom is an initiative that enables us to work collaboratively with other like-minded, forward thinking companies," explained eCom's Managing Director, Wendy Edie.

"Our 'Friends of eCom' initiative has evolved due to the speed and need during lockdown and includes many of our key partners such as The HR Booth, our membership groups, our clients and like-minded individuals who offer complementary products or services that can add value."
