Competency Training for the Rail Industry
Work Smarter with Competency Training
MarketplaceTM (CTM) – the Integrated Competency Management and Training Marketplace Platform
As employers grapple with a complicated regulatory environment they need a fast, simple solution to keep their projects on track.
CTM is an easy-to-use, one-stop shop which enables organisations to book and manage workforce training keeping them fully operational. CTM’s creators Sopra Steria, have used an in depth knowledge of rail and their skills as a European leader in consulting, digital services and software to provide the industry with a smarter way to work. Sopra Steria places people at the heart of everything it does and is committed to making the most of digital technology to build a positive future for its clients.
We wanted CTM to be accessible to all, so we have made sure that it is completely free to use marketplace, competency management tools and promote courses, with only a 5% referral fee required from the training provider side when a course is booked. Designed with accessibility and specifically with the rail industry in mind to combat competency and training challenges, CTM is set to become THE training platform for the rail industry.
A Digital Platform for Training Providers and Employers
CTM was developed through an identified need to streamline the compliance and training process in the rail industry, to make it easier to plan projects and pass risk audits.
The integrated marketplace is full of industry accredited training providers, with a number of essential qualifications to choose from, to fit the need of any employee. Upskilling employees has never been easier and neither has passing an audit. This is helped by CTM’s in-built project planning and forecasting tools, which shows which staff are sufficiently qualified for upcoming projects and which employees have imminently expiring qualifications. If a qualification is expiring, the integrated marketplace ensures a seamless booking experience for the necessary training. Have all your staff and their qualifications in one place to make management and project planning as easy as possible.
CTM’s advanced analytical tools give training providers and organisations alike an insight into upcoming training needs, both geographically and qualification-based, making it a game-changer for keeping projects on track and allowing training providers to identify future training requirements, in line with evolving market needs. This exemplifies how the platform has been built with both employers and training providers in mind.
Case Study: A Digital Solution Being Rapidly Adopted across the Industry
CTM is quickly becoming an essential tool in the rail industry, with organisations like Costain, Arcadis and OMS coming on board to use the platform.
Emma Hughes, the Wellbeing Lead for Costain said: “CTM will have a hugely positive impact for both large and small businesses alike. CTM’s ability to mark out training and provide expiration reminders, all whilst removing the task of finding providers to deliver training, is incomparable to our previous processes.”
