Learner feedback forms for apprenticeship training providers

September 11th, 2019 Posted by Apprenticeships, Schools and Colleges No Comment yet
learner feedback forms

Learner feedback is a critical part of apprenticeship training, enabling your apprentice to maximise their learning at the different stages of training. It is also a vital part of the overall dialogue and relationship management between the employer, the apprentice and you – the training provider. 

The importance of learner feedback

By undertaking learner feedback throughout the apprenticeship, you can check your apprentice is on target and making progress. Learner feedback forms also help to raise awareness of your apprentice’s strengths and areas for improvement, identifying actions to be taken to improve their performance, while helping you to ensure the apprentice is applying their learning to the job.

Delivering learner feedback using electronic forms

Providing effective feedback helps apprentices to develop. It motivates them to learn more and improve, but if you are able to produce feedback using electronic methods, it also provides a means for them to monitor their progress over a period of time more effectively. 

By switching to electronic learner feedback forms, the whole process is more dynamic and responsive. Unlike paper forms, electronic forms speed up the process, allowing all three parties – the employer, the learner and the training provider – to send, receive and reflect upon the feedback in a format that can be easily stored safely and referred back to throughout the training. 

Tailor made for success

Electronic forms can be completely customised to suit your specific needs, including branding and allowing you to focus on specific training areas. Unlike paper learner feedback forms, any changes or updates to the form can be made easily and be live instantly. They are also far quicker to complete for apprenticeship training providers as many people find it far quicker to type than write manually by hand. There’s also no guesswork when it comes to trying to read someone else’s handwriting!

Faster Results

With electronic feedback forms, employers and apprentices can receive training feedback in real-time via email, safely and securely. Forms can be accessed from any device – desktop, tablets and phones – ensuring everyone always stay up to date with the progress of the apprentice. 

Stand out from the competition 

There are hundreds of apprenticeship training providers, all offering similar courses and competition is fierce.  By improving the way in which you provide learner feedback could well give you the edge over other training providers in your industry. 

If you would like a FREE TRIAL of our electronic apprenticeship feedback forms to see how they can improve training efficiency and have more satisfied clients, please get in touch with us today or phone us on 01244 955350. 

Obtaining patient consent for acne treatments

consent forms for acne treatment

If you are an aesthetic practitioner or facial therapist performing acne treatments in the UK, you will know how important it is to gain patient consent. 

A popular treatment for eliminating unsightly acne blemishes, along with other skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage, chemical peels can be life-transforming for patients. 

These highly effective treatments exfoliate away layers of skin to reveal fresher, clearer and more youthful looking skin, but it is vital that you obtain clear consent for these invasive procedures. 

Electronic consent forms are safer

Old fashioned paper forms are risky. All too often they can be handed in incomplete. It’s time-consuming to check over them, whereas electronic forms have mandatory fields that ensure all that critical data is collected and stored. Electronic acne treatment consent forms are a smart, efficient way to collect and update client data, while protecting practitioners. 

A smarter way to gain consent

Paper consent forms can so easily get lost, damaged or stolen, which can also leave you vulnerable to litigation. Electronic patient consent forms for acne treatment, on the other hand, provide total peace of mind. You can rest assured that all your client sensitive information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. It can also be stored securely and is easy to access from any device. 

GDPR Compliant

Electronic acne treatment consent forms also allow practitioners to stay compliant with GDPR, allowing you to easily update the latest GDPR consent requests when switching to electronic forms. 

Improved patient experience

Acne treatment patient consent forms can be completed and updated on an iPad or tablet, speeding up the consultation process and providing a more superior customer experience.  Electronic forms can also be branded with your logo and used for a wide range of treatments.

Car Dealerships – Use the latest in technology for a digital paperwork solution

August 29th, 2019 Posted by Motor Industry No Comment yet

In a car dealership, service, parts and sales departments still rely heavily on paper based forms. With hybrid and electric cars being the popular choice for the future, why are we not adopting the same approach when it comes to dealership paperwork? The use of traditional pen and paper form filling costs car businesses considerably, in excessive paper usage, delays and wasted admin time resulting in a lack of efficiency.

Let’s take a test drive form for instance. This is a simple, yet important document of consent. Here, you can upload a photo of the driving licence and add multiple or third party electronic signatures. The advanced signature feature imprints the date and time of the signature and can even take a picture of the test driver for improved authenticity. Why not test out the below electronic example form for yourself?

Test Drive / Service Loan Agreement

Sales operations within a dealership should and can be a lot more streamlined, improving the experience for the customer and freeing up time for the sales professional to sell more vehicles 😉

The customer journey from consultation, part ex appraisal, test drive, finance approval to service plans and after sales paperwork can all be completed electronically using iPEGS. Once complete, they can be downloaded as a pdf and either uploaded to a CRM or stored and managed effectively using the iPEGS secure portal. This means that customer forms are all managed electronically in one place and can be accessed instantly should you need to revisit them in the future. 

Forms can either be completed with the customer at the dealership using a tablet or iPAD or sent electronically to them prior to an appointment via a weblink, to complete and sign using a smartphone or any device.

Once completed, a copy of the form is automatically emailed to the customer – so no photocopying required!

Create a more secure environment for your customers and staff at your dealership and go paperless with iPEGS today. Call us on 01244 955350 or email us sales@ipegs.co.uk

Field based Engineers instantly submit paperwork electronically back to the office

August 19th, 2019 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

Organisations who have Service Engineers working out in the field understand the importance of accurate paperwork completion. Most engineers still operate using the traditional method of pen and paper to carry out service and maintenance checks.

This method can cause problems for both the office and engineer, meaning that reports can be incomplete, get misplaced or damaged. 

The time it takes for paperwork to reach the office can sometimes be days or weeks. Therefore, administrators cannot action work within the time frames needed. 

Using iPEGS, the Engineer can access multiple electronic forms to complete using an iPAD, tablet or mobile phone and submit straight back to the office. 

Please find linked below an example electronic security risk assessment.

Security Risk Assessment

The photo feature gives the Engineer the ability to take photographic evidence to add to the form. The unique signature feature allows for multiple signatures to be added, which include the time, date and GPS location.

Once a form has been submitted, the admin team will get a notification via email with the completed form attached. The form can be downloaded as a pdf and imported into the client’s record within a CRM system or managed within the secure iPEGS Portal. In this portal you can build, brand and manage all of your submitted forms.
