Brighter Futures Merseyside Ltd is a premier training company offering Study Programme and Traineeships throughout England, specifically in Liverpool and the wider Merseyside region. We are tried and trusted in supporting organisations to recruit excellent and suitable apprentices to meet their needs.


We require the development of a bespoke Learner Information System (LIS) to enable us to better manage our learners, including geographically dispersed learners.

The LIS must cover the following:

Attendance – with the ability to remotely log attendance in a convenient manner while allowing for timely analysis based upon pre-determined criteria

Course Development – with the ability for us to conveniently develop course frameworks

Evidence Collation – with the ability to upload and manage evidence (written, visual and audio) based upon the courses we have developed

Progress Tracking – with the ability to manage progress against evidence collation using predetermined criteria.

We require this system to be developed prior to the next academic year starting in September 2019.
