Client: Rethink Mental Illness

The Objective

The leading mental illness charity Rethink Mental Illness commissioned us to produce an induction module for use by new staff and volunteers. The main objectives were to give users:

  • A good understanding of the organisation’s history and the context in which they work now.
  • An awareness of how Rethink Mental Illness is funded, structured and managed.
  • Knowledge of who the key stakeholders are and their individual role within Rethink Mental Illness.

The induction module formed part of a wider programme, which included line manager support and face-to-face training.

The Solution

Working in partnership with the Learning and Development Manager at Rethink Mental Illness, Little Man Project developed a 45-minute module in line with a recent corporate rebranding. The elearning module was structured using a simple user-determined menu navigation page to enable users to explore at their own pace. An interactive historical timeline was used to demonstrate key milestones throughout the history of the organisation, which included personal stories from stakeholders. The learning module also included videos of key stakeholders and interaction using quizzes and activities. It ended with a short summative assessment.

Little Man Project produced the module within Articulate Storyline to allow future updates to be completed by Rethink who, like all our clients, were given the source files.

The Process

Rethink’s recent rebrand and strong people-focused approach meant that, as with many of our clients, the development of the module was very collaborative. This included regular contact with the project team to ensure the solution was technically, culturally and brand accurate. At the end of the project, the module was uploaded and tested by Little Man Project onto the Rethink Mental Illness Learning Management System.

The Impact

The impact of these changes will significantly reduce travel costs and give departments greater flexibility in deciding when the programme should be completed.  It also ensures consistency in the messages being given.

I am delighted with the programme and was impressed with the professionalism Gill contributed to the job. Thanks Gill.
