Four new e-learning courses have been launched by the Scheme. Each course reflects the Scheme’s current Code of Considerate Practice and Monitor’s Checklist. The free courses, which are available on the Best Practice Hub are designed to help Scheme-registered activity to improve their standards across all areas of the Code, as well as know how the Registration and Monitoring process works and what additional support is available from the Scheme.
The new e-learning courses are:
- Introduction to the Considerate Constructors Scheme – covers the purpose of the Scheme, how the registration and monitoring processes work, as well as the additional resources that are available to assist during registration.
- Respect the Community – covers why registered activity should respect the local community and how in doing so, this can help to prepare for Monitor visits, improve relationships with residents, members of the public and local businesses and raise standards in the industry.
- Care for the Environment – covers information on why registered activity should protect the environment and identify, communicate and manage environmental issues. In doing so, this can help to prepare for Monitor visits and help to improve performance.
- Value their Workforce – covers why registered activity should value their workforce and seek to maintain a happier, healthier group of workers who feel respected and supported. In doing so, this can help to prepare for Monitor visits and help to raise standards in this area.
The e-learning courses are available to all registered users of the Best Practice Hub. There is a short quiz to complete at the end of each of the courses to test participants’ knowledge and understanding. All participants who successfully pass the course will be issued with a certificate.
E-learning modules were introduced by the Scheme in 2016 and there are currently 11 courses available. They are hugely popular with over 100,000 taken so far.
