Our market-leading LMS manages all aspects of delivery in a single system, providing you with the efficiency and clarity needed to thrive.
PICS for Skills LMS
Employer engagement & recruitment
PICS provides a robust employer engagement pipeline, supporting your sales team to smoothly onboard new business for your organisations. Features include online lead capture, opportunity tracking, digital contracting and more.
Applicant management facilities help you to provide a responsive service to your prospective learners from initial contact to signup. Features include online application forms, vacancy matching and a flexible workflow manager. Integrations with the Recruit an Apprenticeship Service and Learner Records Service make the process as smooth as possible.
With your employer and applicant engagement flowing seamlessly into your Learner Management System, these efficient processes will help you to provide an excellent customer experience.
With its fully integrated paperless onboarding solution (Form Capture Application), PICS can minimise administrative costs, drastically reduce turnaround times and provide a robust process for maintaining compliance.
The Form Capture Application supports a wide range of forms, from apprenticeship agreements and commitment statements to health and safety documentation, change of circumstance documents and more, ensuring that you can transition to a completely paper-free workflow.
ePortfolio & delivery
eAssessor provides a comprehensive ePortfolio fully integrated into PICS. This single-system approach reduces the administrative burden of maintaining multiple systems and ensures that staff have a holistic view of the programme.
The system is equally capable of tracking the knowledge, skills and behaviours of Apprenticeship Standards or delivering any vocational qualification. Clear graphical reporting demonstrates the learner's progress since their starting point and helps you to identify areas of your delivery that require attention.
Alternatively, our 3rd party ePortfolio interfaces make it easy for organisations who have already implemented OneFile, SmartAssessor or Learning Assistant to incorporate our market-leading administrative systems without needing to change their portfolio.
ILR, funding & compliance
PICS capitalises on our 25 years of experience to provide our customers with the most robust ILR-focused MIS on the market. We understand that the ILR is not simply "another form" and provide a breadth of features to take the pain out of this bureaucratic process and help you to monitor and maintain compliance.
The unique inbuilt funding calculator can project funding for all ESFA programmes at the click of button, while reconcilers and reporting facilities help ensure that you have maximised your claim.
Reporting & insight
The PICS reporting suite provides insights into all aspects of your organisation, helping you to identify strengths and weaknesses and make informed business decisions. PICS offers a comprehensive suite of analyses, including achievement rates, finances, progression and more.
Reporting options include interactive graphical reports, spreadsheet outputs and scheduled emails, making sure that information is easily accessible to all key staff.
