The assessments really are very simple to use

Over the last few years we have had countless numbers of people attending our workshops absolutely petrified at the thought of having to use a computer and some flatly refusing. Every single person has left the room feeling inspired and confident, with many saying they will now start looking at other ways they can use the computer. We always say "If you can wiggle a mouse, you can make it work".

Donít take our word for it. These are some of the things that the people using the assessments have said:

Just a line to say thank you for the training on Friday. I went feeling very daunted and came away feeling confident that "I can do this" Thanks again. Wakefield Council

The format of the website is clear and easy to read. Itís easy to log on and move between standards. I was very impressed with the provision and ease of altering the fonts, colours etc. and thought this was very helpful for someone with dyslexia. Overall I found the questions easy to understand and the display is nice and clear for answering questions and moving to the next one. The results page is very clear and allows the candidate to discuss the incomplete answers with their supervisor. The feedback following the assessments is extremely well laid out and provides a great reference point to go back to during supervision. Berkshire

Having a team of 18 staff, I wanted to have two staff members try it out who had different levels of ability with computers. Both staff members found it easy to navigate and stimulating to use. It gave a theme to their visit and even making deliberate mistakes gave us food for thought and encouraged debate. Brilliant tool for training! Thanks. Wakefield Council

Hi, Just a brief note to comment on the CIS induction training which I attended last week. I think the program for carers is excellent. As always with the introduction of new information there is a good deal of anxiety involved and when carers are dealing with challenges and time restraints, any additional expectations can sometimes feel like a bridge too far! However, the simplicity of the assessment and the way in which it has been designed really does make it incredibly user friendly which will hopefully start us all off on the right foot. The relaxed nature of the training delivery was also very well suited to carers. Many thanks. Sally Bull, Senior Practitioner, Leicester City Council

Very user friendly and easy to access at anytime from any PC. Have found it an immensely useful tool for annual appraisal, for appraising current knowledge and identifying gaps. Online assessments are a way forward for our current staff, as cost is making some training very restrictive. These are good quality professional assessment processes.

Thanks for a great training session today. I was so impressed with your product and the way in which you presented itÖ Itís brilliant!!! Itís so clear that so much thought and enthusiasm has been put into the development. I canít wait to put it into operation. Angela, Cornwall

I just wanted to let you know that I believe the CIS Assessment tool is fantastic. I have done all 6 assessments myself and have tasked my management team to do the same. Once this is complete we will roll down to all team leaders and then to all new and existing staff. The tool provides a great objective measure of understanding and comprehension of the induction standards and will provoke a great deal of debate in the organisation (of this I am sure from my own experience in striving for 6 x 100% results!). Please pass on my thanks to those who took the funding decision. It will be very helpful for us and our clients. Stephen Mills, Managing Director, DoCare Limitedís. This endorsement reflects well on our decision to purchase the tool for Gloucestershire and is excellent feedback for Alex as well as us. Angela Willis, Workforce Commissioning and Partnerships Manager, Gloucestershire County Council

Fantastic demo. I really enjoyed this training and found it very enlightening. MH, Bradford

The assessments were quite easy to use. The language was clear and easy to understand. Very informative and clearly explained. DS

Well delivered, clear guidance given at each stage. Felt encouraged to participate. Excellent. Ann Clarke, Chief Executive, YOS Prevention

I think the package is very good, very interesting and motivating and most importantly - easy to use. Can see this being extremely useful during supervision and appraisal. Jean Rossiter, Senior Worker, Bridge Centre

I have been trying to develop an induction program for the new starters within our team. This is the answer!! The training today was very clear and I love the tool. Carmel Hilton, PCT

Fully met intended objectives. Excellent briefing. Well presented. Easy to understand how to apply in practice Ė whole system approach. Sandra Hutchinson, WFD Officer, St Helenís Council
