The Laser, an e-portfolio to cover all subject areas with all awarding Organizations, is an effective and efficient way of creating an evidenced based portfolio on line. It is able to store evidence in many formats creating interest and flexibility for learners and captures the assessor’s comments and feedback against each piece of uploaded evidence. It allows you to work anytime anywhere, creating a better work/life balance for all users. It is an enabling environment for learners because it lets them take control of their learning and become independent thinkers.

Using the Laser system to deliver your UK qualifications gives you a system that is accessible at any time and in any place to all users including quality managers, overseas quality inspectors and customer support and training. A system is of course only as good as the end user, you therefore need to be sure that an expert in the system and in teaching these qualifications can be on hand to support and guide you. With The Laser this is exactly what you get. Professionals not only experienced in using the Laser, but also in childcare, assessment and verification.

While the Laser e-portfolio is suitable for any qualification, for overseas clients it is of particular benefit and success in the childcare and health care areas. Many qualifications in these areas come with fully embedded lessons to support teaching staff by providing appropriate quality resources to meet the necessary assessment requirements. These lessons and resources are regularly checked for accuracy and current legislation and are detailed enough to give more than is necessary for a good level of depth and underpinning knowledge. Ofsted, the inspectorate for training in the UK, called the embedded lesson area of the Laser “engaging and motivating”

The highly visual approach to what has been achieved is motivating and supportive. Indeed Ofsted inspectors said that the Laser, “…enables learners to identify easily their individual progress and what elements of the qualification they still need to do.”

Learners can see their progress in a variety of ways. Progress through a qualification is displayed both numerically as a percentage and visually with a progress bar. The percentage of each unit is then broken right down to percentage achieved for each learning outcome. The completed criteria change colour as an even clearer sign of progression, which is highly motivating. It also makes a “gap analysis” a very simple process.

The Laser e-portfolio incorporates the entire learning journey, keeps records of all contact, allows for the sending and receiving of emails and includes a highly beneficial forum. The course surveys inform and direct the training provider as to the experience the learner is having on their chosen course. Tracking quality and progress from both tutor and learner points of view is amazingly simple using The Laser.

The work placement secure system log in allows for quality employer engagement, making the Laser e-portfolio a fully functional, highly effective method of gaining and passing on information.

For those who like to work or learn on the move we have Laser mobile apps beautifully crafted to be clear and easy to use. Mobile devices give even greater access and flexibility to our clients. The Apps are available for both iOS and android devices.
