Already used in the UK to train over 85,000 polling station staff across 80 authorities, Election Trainer provides access to high-quality, convenient training in a way that engages staff and fits around individual schedules.
Election Trainer is our cost-effective, online training solution designed to make training your polling station staff quicker, easier and more efficient. As a modern, web-based tool, the solution avoids the complexity of having to organise multiple face-to-face sessions, allowing your staff to complete the training at a place, pace and time to suit them.
The solution has been designed to engage students' minds and motivate them during the course with interactive, repeatable exercises based on the Electoral Commission’s guidelines. The course is not only informative and engaging, it’s also regularly updated to keep pace with changing legislation so you can be sure your staff are getting the information they need.
The training ensures a consistent message is delivered to all Poll Clerks and Presiding Officers while being flexible to work around individual student commitments. A key benefit is that students can learn at their own pace, at a time that suits them and from any location with an internet connected device. As students take an online assessment at the end of each course, you also have greater visibility of staff progress and development and have the confidence and the paperwork you need to demonstrate that your polling station staff are prepared for all their responsibilities.
