Case Study

An Analytical and Instructor Led Training (ILT) Provision, for a UK Government Customer:

In partnership with a major training provider, Helyx provides bespoke, context-based geo-processing and spatial analysis training courses, for a major UK Government customer. Course content is delivered over a 4 day period, by our highly experienced instructors, all of whom have a comprehensive understanding of the customer’s mission and objectives. The training course includes a combination of classroom based lessons, demonstrations and practical exercises, tailored and designed to enhance our customer’s operational effectiveness.

A complete Training Solution for Deployable GIS Capability:

As part of a major Geographic Information System (GIS) capability upgrade programme, Helyx was selected to conduct a comprehensive Training Needs Analysis (TNA). Following completion of the TNA, a set of tailored training requirements was produced and utilised, to design and deliver two context-based and task-oriented training packages.

A blended Training Solution for a Large-Scale MOD Programme:

Selected as the training lead for a new UK MOD programme, Helyx conducted a wide-ranging Training Needs Analysis (TNA) to facilitate the design, development and delivery of a blended training solution. Our ongoing services employ an array of training delivery methods, including Computer Based Training (CBT), Instructor Led Training (ILT), Train the Trainer Training (TTT) and On the Job Training (OJT). Training is provided for a wide variety of cohorts, all with differing capabilities and requirements; to address this element, we have created a series of bespoke Computer Based Training (CBT) packages. The CBT packages are fully interactive and enable users to gain a better understanding of how they might be affected by specific system updates, and changes to previous processes and procedures. This method enhances user experience of how they use updated or new systems, in an operational context without affecting the live system.

• Helyx uses a systematic approach to training, fully compliant with the Defence System Approach to Training and SCORM for CBT.
• Our Training Needs Analysis (TNA) encompasses consideration of; Manpower, Training, Sustainability, Structures and Doctrine.
• On large scale programmes we work with Prime Systems Integrators, to share the challenges and risks associated with Defence and Government procurement.
• Our training solutions ensure the training audience is exposed to as many context based scenarios as possible, promoting knowledge and skill transfer, to enhance operational capability.
