A project to develop a set of learning outcomes for Information Literacy training programmes in the West Midlands was commissioned by the West Midland Regional Trainers Forum (WMRTF) in 2009. The intention was to inform the content of individual structured training programmes across the West Midlands and develop a planned package of e learning. The format would be in line with and replace an existing West Midlands information skills training scheme a. The opportunity was taken to incorporate the recommendations of: HILL Review and Framework for Quality Improvement b West Midlands NHS Improving patient care: meeting the NHS challenge to improve quality and productivity, through innovation in Library and Knowledge Services c Department of Health National Service framework of quality improvement for NHS funded library services in England.

Introduction Recent Developments References Content & Purposes Referenced Standards As illustrated in Figure 1. the Training Sessions Framework modules include: Bibliographic Databases – Basic; Bibliographic Databases – Advanced; Electronic subscription resources; Evidence based databases (including Cochrane Library), Evaluation, Critical Appraisal, Publishing, Copyright, Citations. The modules make up what the Project Team considers to be a comprehensive curriculum of information literacy. The list is not a minimum curriculum to be completed in entirety. The core outcomes must be met within each module alongside as many of the non-core elements as are considered relevant in context. Information literacy facilitators may add further elements of their choosing to the outcomes. This document provides a method for linking the training sessions to the NHS KSF and to the RCN information literacy competences. The earlier document mapped the skills to the NHS Knowledge Skills Framework e. In January 2011 a further relevant publication emerged from the Royal College of Nursing, RCN Competences: finding, using and managing information f. The passport was therefore revised by mapping its modules to the RCN document. The result is this current revision. Since this document was launched in 2011 it has been adopted by the BaSE E-learning Group (Birmingham, Solihull, Black Country) as the template for its VLE. In 2012 another Midlands Trainers Forum Project Team has taken it as the basis for mapping the skills set to SCONUL’s Seven Pillars of Information Literacy.
