We have been working with a national Building Consultancy for some time supporting them with their compliance needs including setting them up on ComplianceManaged® to manage their bid content and accreditations.
As part of their work they support Schools and Academies with the maintenance and property management of School Assets and Estates. It is well known that Schools and Academies are under increasing pressure with regards to paperwork and administration, therefore our Client was keen to identify a solution to make the School’s life easier.
We had a discussion with the Managing Director about setting up an Academy/School specific module in ComplianceManaged®. This would include all the statutory and regulatory documentation which must be managed and kept up to date as well as some other items which are just good to have to hand and in date. By setting this bespoke module up for our Client with specific placeholders for documentation it will make their work and life easier supporting the Schools and Academies on a long term basis as well as making the Schools more efficient in managing their paperwork. Ultimately this will also drive cost savings and improved standards within those School Estates as checks and condition reports are maintained as they should be. This is very important when some of the checks include electrics, gas and structural integrity.
If those areas are not kept up to date and well maintained it can cost more money long term to put right and will leave the School in breach of their obligations to protect the safety of those using the buildings and estates.
Using the Dashboard facility our Client can add Academies under their own account and monitor compliance proactively, whilst the Academy have their own access to keep documentation up to date.
In addition to the software we also helped the client write a simplified Quality Manual for the Training Centre to cover off all CITB requirements for ongoing monitoring. The Quality Manual was based on the structure of ISO 9001 with simplified content.
