99p training scheme!

06 December 2012

Jangro has developed a new distance learning programme for cleaning training called the ‘Learning Management System’ (LMS). Contract cleaning companies and organisations directly employing cleaning staff, will soon be able to afford training for every employee on a range of specific cleaning tasks for only £0.99p per person per course.

The first release of LMS programmes will offer modules to cover basic everyday janitorial activities. The first three titles released in December will focus on Floorcare, COSHH and Washroom Cleaning. Others scheduled for early 2013 will include: Introduction to cleaning, Introduction to Equipment, Kitchen Hygiene, PH scale and cleaning agents, Colour Coding, Bio-Hazards, Infection Control and Carpet Care.

All LMS modules come with range of on line COSHH and technical data sheets, risk assessment and product usage guides animated instruction on everyday tasks and an ‘Ask the expert’ interactive source of information. The LMS is accessible on any laptop, palmtop, tablet, BlackBerry, android phones or ipad. A short sample of one LMS programme can be seen on http://youtu.be/MozOy1Du8JY

All sources of information, excluding the LMS training modules, can also be accessed on a new Jangro mobile phone App or by scanning the relevant QR code within the Jangro catalogue and soon to be available on product packaging.

To provide the best up to date practical advice, top cleaning trainer Tommy Taylor has worked with Jangro as consultant editor on all training and technical issues.

The LMS system works remotely so it can be carried out at times to suit the user. Programmes operating times vary from 50 minutes to 90 for the very detailed floor care module. Users can dip in and out in short sessions – maybe 15 minutes a day to suit, so learning could never be easier. Employers and training managers can remotely monitor employees’ progress and check on progress of each employee.

Jeremy Thorn, Sales and Marketing Director of Jangro said: “Today distribution organisations have big customer responsibilities and if they want to grow their market share they have to add value to the products they sell and training is the most effective way of meeting customer needs.”

End users must understand cleaning issues and be aware of the right and wrong way of carrying out each task. The LMS is affordable for every organisation employing cleaning staff and will ultimately save money in getting the job done the right way, the first time, using the right products.”

Andrew Large, Chief Executive of the Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA), representing hundreds of contractors that employ hundreds of thousands of operatives said: “It is every employees’ right to be given adequate training for the job but all to often only a small number of staff get selected because of the high cost or time away from the job to train. This programme beats both these problems as it is low cost, practical and doesn’t mean time off from the job. There’s no excuse now for bad practice from untrained staff – is any employee not worth £0.99p?”
