Learning and Development are key parts of the overall business strategy. Your Career Academy has more than twenty-five modules that can be customised to suit organisational learning and development strategies. L&D processes enhance an employee’s skills, knowledge, and competency, resulting in better performance in a work setting. Due to its convenience and flexibility, learning is possible from anywhere at anytime.
Our competency framework is a key area to measure competency based on a key set of criteria formulated by the organisation. This may involve links to corporate values and behavioral expectations. Your Career Academy offers over 100 different competencies to choose from. Competency-based online training focuses on tasks and skills that employees can develop over time which in return will be beneficial for the organisation.
A development stream allows the employee and manager to track the progress of their career linked to training courses, e-learning, test assessments, or any process to develop the individual. Tracking progress will help individuals to have a self assessment and find the ways through which the progress can be improved. This can be modified to suit the organisational requirements.
YCA has developed a test and assessment process that allows the organisation to generate true Return on Investment (ROI). This process allows new tests to be created and scored automatically by the platform. Based on the curriculum or training, the admin or the assessor can configure the assessment questions using different formats such as descriptive, true or false, multiple-choice, etc. The responses can be marked by an assessor/ trainer, or the system will generate an automatic system answer.
Course Library allows the learners to access any sort/type of information or data stored by your organisation. This can include inductions, reports, best practices, shared knowledge, benchmarking, etc. Your Career Academy has a comprehensive library to help all users. They can find supporting learning documents under different categories. Individuals can have their own space on the Academy to have instant access to information and data that applies to their own development.
Mentoring being an inevitable part of the learning process, Your Career Academy helps learners access their mentors in an easy and effective way. There are mentor help prompts on the platform as well as email alerts to the mentor and mentee. Interaction between mentee and mentors is made possible through a secured platform.
360 Feedback is a great way of developing an understanding or other people’s views based on set criteria of surveys. Surveys can be created by your organisation and uploaded onto the platform. 360° Feedback is a Development Tool to help employees recognise strengths and weaknesses and become more effective. The feedback process gives people an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback to a co-worker. Recipients of feedback get opportunity to adjust their behaviours and develop skills that will enable them to excel at their jobs.
The recognition and awards process allows the manager/supervisor or the mentor to recognise for achievement. The YCA Awards process helps employees strive for achievement. Research shows that employees are most motivated when rewarded and recognised for their achievements. YCA does this through a combination of Awards and Recognition modules. On completion of a course the learner can download certificates.
Career Profiling is a great way to understand your own style and that of your teams. Knowing what excites them and their preferred working style enables you to lead and manage them to greater effect. Understanding your team is an effective way to gain personal and business growth. Self-assessment summaries your skills, values, interests, personality traits and other necessary background information.
Gamification is a great way for employees to earn badges of each element of their development journey. Our experience tells us that people want to achieve at all levels and to get a small recognition for their achievement. This is a great way to give simple and effective recognition. Recognition always enables employees to perform better.
The Stakeholder Management process allows staff to map out who is important to them based on the degree of interest a person has with them. The second scale is the amount of power someone has over them. It is important to map out key stakeholders to enable effective change and development. Maintaining good relationships with the people who have the most impact on your work and communicating with each one in the right way is important.
Use a variety of question types including those requiring a qualitative response to determine skill levels. This will help organisations to identify the areas where their employees perform best or need to improve on. This will enable employees to identify and improve different skills needed for the personal and professional progression.
Different kinds of reports can be generated from Development Stream, Test, Assessment, Workshop, and Courses. A detailed report will help in effective self-assessment and thereby improvement of skills and knowledge. The mentor can also keep track of the mentee by the report overview. Tracking the learning process paves way for improvement.
