But how do you find a good e-Learning Training Provider for Health and Social Care? We’ll help you understand what to look out for in your next training provider.
Training providers in Health and Social care
Traditionally other sectors have direct routes from College or University, the training structure within Health and Social Care is slightly different. Many care providers, will offer on-the-job training whilst care staff continue to work within the sector. This means, they have supported e-Learning courses dependent of their role, and many care providers welcome individuals without prior experience. Although most care roles are physical, there are elements of the Care Certificate that will be covered through workbook documentation, workshops and e-Learning. We suggest finding an e-Learning training provider that integrates workbooks and scenario-based e-Learning to help your learners apply what they’ve learned to their day to day roles.
What e-Learning can be found in health and social care?
In Health and Social Care, there is mandatory training which typically means Health and Social Care workers are required to undertake adequate induction training and annual refresher training to ensure they remain up-to-date with regulatory requirements. These training courses within the Care Certificate commonly include:
- Health and Safety
- Fire Safety
- Equality and Diversity
- Infection Prevention and Control
- Manual Handling
- Food Hygiene/ Food Safety Awareness
These Health and Social Care courses are often revisited and maintained through workshops, workbooks and e-Learning to keep an individual’s Care Certificate and training record up-to-date.
Many e-Learning providers that deliver Health and Social Care courses will provide CPD certified courses, ensuring that the course content is produced at a high standard for your care staff.
Overall Learning and Development in Health and Social Care
By utilising e-Learning as a part of your Health and Social Care’s Learning and Development strategy, you are able to align these goals with care staff’s own Continued Personal Development (CPD) goals. This will also allow managers to quickly identify and bridge any training or skills gaps.
The key benefit about e-Learning created by most training providers, is that it’s generally accredited and interactive. This allows for a truly Blended Learning solution, which involves a range of different learning types, from workshops, face-to-face training, distance learning and e-Learning courses.
Many training providers will deliver different course levels based on Health and Social Care requirements. This means that if you have a more advanced member of the team, you can customise their learning requirements inline with their day to day tasks. Within Health and Social care there is great opportunity for career progression. We believe that personal development is critical to help grow teams and keep staff retention low.
