headspace Denmark is an initiative under The Social Network and provides mental wellbeing counselling service for young people between the age of 12 and 25 years.
Kim Callesen, Centre Manager at headspace Aabenraa said, “With staff at 18 headspace Denmark centres and more than 450 volunteer counsellors across Denmark, we wanted to transform our onboarding and training programmes, beyond the face-to-face introduction weekends and regular theme nights we hold at our centres, to provide the latest in modern digital learning experiences.”
Following consultation with Roiit, digital learning consultants and Agylia partner in Denmark, headspace Denmark chose the Agylia LMS and mobile learning Apps as their learning platform because of its modern functionality, ease of use and ability to create a highly effective digital learning environment for both learners and administrators.
The Agylia LMS, branded has the headspace Academy, has provided headspace Denmark with a very powerful, reliable and easy-to-use delivery infrastructure. The Agylia LMS enables headspace Denmark to host and deliver a wide range of digital learning resources, including eLearning courses, events, videos, podcasts and documents, to staff and volunteers across the organisation.
The Agylia mobile learning Apps provides headspace Denmark staff and volunteers with access to the latest learning materials on their iOS and Android mobile or tablet. Due to the nature of the learning environment - where staff and counsellors are supporting young people at a headspace centre or remotely via chat - the learning materials can be accessed via the Agylia App wherever and whenever required.
The Agylia learner portal and mobile learning Apps are available to headspace Denmark employees in both Danish and English, with learners being able to select their preferred language.
“This is our first learning platform and it’s a significant step forward for headspace Denmark. Working with Roiit and Agylia, we’ve been able to modernise our learning programmes and provide staff and counsellors with engaging digital learning experiences, helping them to grow and develop."
“Our new digital learning approach is enabling us to onboard new staff and volunteers quickly, meaning they can begin to support young people quickly too. We are also be able to deliver ongoing learning programmes – sharing content, insights and techniques – to develop our people’s knowledge and understanding of the challenges young people have and come with.”
“headspace academy is helping us with our ultimate goal, improving the service we provide the young people who come to us for support,” added Kim.
