In 2018 we partnered with the Scottish Business Resilience Centre to create “Constellate”, a suite of business training apps, designed to connect learning and working.
The Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) is a non-profit organisation which exists to support and help protect Scottish businesses. Their unique connection to Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Scottish Government gives them exclusive access to the latest information on legislation, criminal trends and threats, allowing them to provide the very best advice to safeguard staff, customers and business.
Our first Constellate app was developed to provide a comprehensive foundation on the principles, responsibilities and processes under the General Data Protection Regulation.
We engaged the subject matter expertise of a leading Scottish data protection lawyer to establish the key learning requirement and facilitated scenario storyboard sessions to create a series of realistic 3D office based scenarios, with supporting help facility and glossary.
Following development, the app was rigorously tested both for functionality and compatibility, to ensure it would work on all smart devices, and an equalities impact assessment was also undertaken.
The scenario questions and learning outcomes were reviewed by Skills for Justice Awards, resulting in each user achieving accreditation, with a certificate of learning assessment on successful completion as evidence of their personal development. Further, organisations can apply for organisational certification, demonstrating their data protection commitment to customers and clients.
A licence administration was developed in tandem with the app, so that moderators within organisations can allocate training licences and review relevant management information.
This 3D immersive application can be used on any device and is as applicable for small businesses as it is for the rapid training of large numbers of staff on GDPR fundamentals. It is an engaging way to learn about this important regulatory topic and suits all learning preferences and styles. The app content is reviewed to ensure it is always up to date and through its platform flexibility, the app continues to support the user at any ‘moment of need’.
We look forward to the development of further business resilience applications with SBRC.
