The British Psychological Society selects Titus to develop a custom Moodle Workplace LMS

July 2, 2020

The British Psychological Society (BPS) is a registered charity which acts as the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK. As part of its remit, the society offers professional development opportunities, accreditation and qualifications to its membership of more than 60,000.

In mid-2019, BPS, working with digital transformation specialists Difrent (difrent.co.uk), identified a need to develop and implement a new learning management system which would provide a unified hub for the provision of CPD, Apprenticeships, Education & Training and Organisational Development. Following a rigorous tender process, Titus was selected as the most qualified supplier for the project. 

“The exploration work that went into selecting Titus and the Moodle platform was necessarily rigorous and has provided BPS with a learning platform for the Society to grow and expand in new directions as well as better serving their current members. The decision to go with an Open Source solution in Moodle also shows the commitment of the leadership at BPS to meaningful change and to providing their membership with the best possible products; ones that have a fantastic offering now but also offer great capacity to evolve in the future.”
Daniel Leakey
Business Change Director at Difrent

Titus designed a bespoke solution based around the Moodle Workplace platform which would be hosted in the Amazon Web Services cloud. The platform composed of several key elements:

The new LMS will impact on several areas of operations within BPS. Moodle Workplace allows BPS to offer a blended CPD programme combining both their own internal content and resources from third party providers.

In terms of education and training, BPS is able to explore alternative types of qualifications, access to new markets, and innovative delivery methods. With the advanced reporting tools available they’ll be able to ensure that they maintain audit compliance, including monitoring of financial transactions.

Registrations for apprenticeships, and tracking the progress and attainment of those apprenticeships can be managed via Moodle Workplace. And BPS staff will be able to use the platform as a learning portal where they can undertake their own professional development and sign off against any key policies or compliance documents. 

Peta-Marche Fee, Head of Professional Development & Assessment at BPS commented on the project: “Our new VLE will equip the Society  with the platform to provide CPD, qualifications and end-point assessments for apprentices in a flexible and interactive way, reaching to our members and the wider workforce not only in the United Kingdom but also internationally.”

Luke Tillotson, Head of Sales at Titus added: “The project had a number of key components to ensure effectiveness, including; rapid scalability, bespoke integration with 3rd party systems and in-depth business intelligence and reporting, which is why we selected Moodle Workplace as the perfect solution to meet the requirements. We’re delighted to be partnering with the BPS to deliver the project, and are excited to see our relationship grow over the coming years.”
