Defence Learning Management Capability – Industry Engagement Days

“The Defence Learning Management Capability will enable Defence to analyse, design, deliver, assure and govern policy compliant Training and Education using a modern, sustainable suite of information services.”

Defence Learning Management Capability (DLMC) is a Ministry of Defence programme for the modernisation of the provision of Training and Education (T&E) services, utilising solutions that will enable defence to reduce operational and financial risk by ensuring personnel are equipped with the right knowledge, skills and experience for any given task. DLMC will provide a richer picture of T&E; assessed performance and training requirements will be informed by historic cost and effectiveness data, optimising the efficient use of scarce resources.

Preliminary programme activity by the Department has produced a set of key and derived business service requirements and an architectural design blueprint for DLMC services. We would like to share with industry our vision for DLMC at an Industry Day on 19 September, to start a process of engagement to enable us to share our intent.

As such, we would like to invite interested organisations to attend a series of two Industry Days; the first one will take place on 19 September at the techUK premises at 10 St Bride Street, LONDON EC4A 4AD.

Industry Day two will take place on 17 October, where organisations will be able to present potential solutions to meet the DLMC vision.

The core of our vision includes:

Better Informed Defence Training

A single Training Management System / Learning Management System (TMS/LMS) that better supports the delivery of T&E for defence, enabling the efficient management of learning records required to develop business intelligence. This is part of the broader vision for defence T&E, which delivers a better T&E experience for those engaged in both the provision and consumption of defence T&E, by exploiting the capabilities of modern learning technology.

Digital Training & Education Services

An underpinning principle for the proposed delivery of DLMC capability is a coherent set of digital T&E business services, utilising where appropriate Government off the Shelf (GOTS) and Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) solutions, that are ‘evergreen’ in operation and open standards compliant. Business services are intended to be operated on MOD containerised ‘platform-as-a-service’ hosting and to be browser accessible to ensure the solution will work for any end user device.

Industry Days:

Day One

  • 95 minute presentation of the DLMC vision from the Authority
  • 30 minutes for Questions and Answers
  • Attending organisations will be invited to respond, in writing, to the Authority, either as a single organisation or collaboratively
  • Industry responses will be reviewed and evaluated, and will help contribute to a refinement of the DLMC vision

Day Two

  • It is envisaged that the format of the second day will be the opportunity for organisations to make presentations to the Authority for potential solutions to meet the DLMC vision.
