Hi, my name's Matthew White. I work for Ufi/learndirect. i have managed the delivery of the Life in the UK Test on behalf of UK Border agency for the last 4 1/2 years. The test is 100% online. I would be interested in talking to anyone with experience of switching from paper and pencil testing to online test delivery in the Public sector or those that are looking to do so. With the CSR coming up, I think e-Assessment is one path to find the effiiciencies that government is looking for.

Budget on 22nd June has the potential to really shake things up within the UK public sector. It may not be comfortable - but in many cases, it's probably what is needed.

I Chaired the Central and Local Government Session at the recent conference. We were asked to discuss what our major shared challenges were and what help the LSG could provide. I have provided the results of our deliberations below.

While non of them were new the discussion was enjoyable and as always it is beneficial to share opportunities to move forward. The mood was positive and by doing this I am fulfilling my commitment to publish the results of the discussion to encourage further debates and thoughts.

I would like to hear of any additions any of you have to the Challenges we face in Central and Local Government and further debate on how we could make our networking more effective through this forum.

Also if the content below raises any questions I would be happy to add anything that would be helpful.

The Challenges were: IT Systems - Security - Access and use of Webex
People Managment - Use of IT - Developing Managers
Skills development rather than Info Retrieval
Knowledge Transfer
Keeping Pace with Change - Political and Economic
Selling Learning - Forced to be reactive - Selling Learning
What is the future going to look like?
Cultural - Flexibility of change rediness - Marketing
Establishing Clarity of purpose

LSG Help
Make learning memorable
Network effective rather than somthing we say we do
Capitalise on emerging knowledge
Harness Networking Technology
brown Bag Lunches
Technology Acceptence
Manager Development
Marketing - Value - Profile of the User
Promote Engagement

I look forward to reading any comments and if you want to chat please call me on 07879607692
