How can I get started with e-Learning for Health and Social Care?
To get started with relevant e-Learning for Care Homes or Health and Social Care organisations, we recommend looking at which courses and learning platforms are needed for your Learning and Development tool-kit. When reviewing for your own needs and requirements, its beneficial to review what features you’d like to utilise within a learning platform, and which titles are covered within e-Learning courses. We advise making a list based on what you need for each separate part to help complete your Learning and Development journey.
A Learning Management System, known as an LMS should be a direct reflection of what you require your Learning and Development to achieve. The key benefit to having an LMS in place within Health and Social Care is to support organisations achieve the minimum standard and maintain compliance for regulatory inspections, such as CQC inspections in England. A LMS will not only benefit Health and Social Care organisations, but also the learner as they can manage their own learning journey, stay up-to-date with Mandatory Training and complete adequate induction training and annual refresher training.
In e-Learning courses, you should ensure courses cover your staffs ‘Mandatory Training’, this means courses that are needed for all workers in Health and Social Care. This is a requirement for all staff members to undergo adequate induction training and annual refresher training to ensure they remain up-to-date with regulatory requirements. These training courses within Health and Social Care often cover:
- Health and Safety
- Fire Safety
- Equality and Diversity
- Infection Prevention and Control
- Manual Handling
- Food Hygiene/ Food Safety Awareness
