Registering Learners using CaptureIT

Learn about the new way to register learners

We know that many organisations have found it difficult to register learners on the Be Connected Learning Portal, and so have struggled to meet the learner registration targets associated with their grants. We also know from feedback that many of you are supporting learners who are not registered.

To address this challenge we have come up with a new tool that you can use to capture those learners who do not yet have the digital skills to register, do not have an email address or who are unwilling to provide this information on the Be Connected Learning Portal. The tool we use to do this is called ‘CaptureIT’.

In this session we aim to look at different features of CaptureIT, how to register learners on it, what are the benefits of using this tool etc.
