Learning management system (LMS) for charities and non profits

Included features and functionality

Intuitive layout

The LMS is designed to be fully intuitive and easy to use. Courses can be created and learning pathways assigned to different groups, so it’s easy for them to navigate and complete training that is relevant to their role.

Track, engage and report

You can easily track and monitor your learners’ progress, by seeing who has completed courses, setting deadlines and creating reports. Managers can have reporting permissions and automatic reminders can be sent for overdue compliance. 


We’ve made it easy to customise and brand your LMS so that it reflects your charity’s branding. We’ll show you how to upload your own custom banners, logos and pictures. You can also add your own content so that you can tailor training to your charity’s policies and procedures. 

Activities & Resources

Course pages can include eLearning modules, videos, classroom booking tool, PDFs, documents, feedback, surveys, quizzes, work books, assignments, certificates, badges, H5P, discussion forums, chat rooms and much more.

This could be your organisation’s first learning management system or perhaps you’re simply looking to switch provider, either way – it’s a simple process to build your platform:


What we need from you
To kick start your LMS we'll ask you to send across your organisation’s logo, brand colours and any additional images or any special requests to build your platform

Step 1

We build

We then build your shiny new eLearning platform

Our technology department will spend a few weeks creating your new platform, based on your branding and the specific content you desire.

Once this is built, we hand it back over to you for testing. We’ll be on hand to help you every step of the way, with ‘how to’ guides and personal training sessions with our support team, to take you through all the features and functionalities of the platform.

Step 2

In the meantime...

Planning for launch

While you’re waiting for your platform to be created is a great time to plan how you're going to launch, advertise and engage your learners. How will you market your new learning platform to your staff and volunteers?

We’re happy to chat through this and support you with some ideas. And remember, make it visually appealing! Think about images for your homepage banner and courses so it's tailored to fit your organisation.

Step 3

Get ready set go!


Just before you do the grand reveal, think about how you’ll support your learners. For example, have you created FAQs? How about showing that you care about your learners, rather than just compliance? Build a relationship with them first by providing personal development courses to start with.

When you’re happy with the platform, it’s all systems go for launch. We’ll be on hand with continuous support. You’ll also have the Consortium community behind you - members are great at sharing.
