Halarose, Scytl’s UK partner, successfully implemented the online election training tool ‘Election Trainer’ in the recent November 2012 PCC elections. The system was used by thousands of polling station staff across the UK and prepared them to undertake their responsibilities on Election Day. Over 95% of all those surveyed said the training was effective at giving them the information needed to assist them in their roles during the election. The training provided was based on the UK Electoral Commission guidance, delivering consistent standards across to the training of to all those trained. A significant advantage of introducing online training to the UK was the flexibility it gave to individual polling station staff to choose when they wished to undertake their training and where they completed it.
