e-Learning for Health and Social Care

February 8, 2023 0 Comments

Did you know that e-Learning courses for Health and Social Care forms a small part of the Learning and Development process for many organisations? This allows them to increase and maintain their overall compliance for Learning and Development, have more control and a positive impact on staff knowledge. Overall e-Learning for Health and Social Care is designed to support Learning and Development and is often planned to help support busy Health and Social Care workers in their day to day roles, without adding on extra resources to an individual’s role.

There are often a full range of e-Learning courses for the Health and Social Care that consist of both mandatory and Continued Personal Development, known as CPD learning. This means any e-Learning courses that are CPD certified and obtain the CPD quality mark, have been certified against universally accepted structured checklist which has been developed by the CPD Certification Service. 

We believe that when it comes to reviewing and implementing a new or existing Learning and Development strategy, it is always a time-consuming process, but one of the key factors to consider, is what mandatory and CPD certified training courses you will need to support your learners, upskill your team and increase staff retention within your Health and Social Care organisation. As a starting point, we suggest looking at which e-Learning courses best suit your organisation’s workforce and be most beneficial to their existing care setting, to support with everyday training.

How can I integrate e-Learning within your Health and Social Care organisation?

Most e-Learning can be sourced directly from a training provider or brought separately depending on the needs of an organisation. How can you implement a new e-Learning solution for your Health and Social Care organisation, you might ask? We advise looking into how your organisation will deliver and manage courses as e-Learning alone will not be a viable source for Learning and Development.

We recommend looking at getting a Learning Management System, known as an LMS, to support and deliver all of your e-Learning needs. Not only does this solution omit issues with wasted admin time, it also aids and assists both large and small organisations with tracking tools to provide adequate reports to prove compliance. Not only that, but, an LMS can support blended learning and virtual training sessions, providing additional support to your Health and Social Care organisation.

What type of e-Learning courses should I be looking for in Health and Social Care?

Within Health and Social Care, there are recommended courses that should be a part of your Learning and Development strategy. These e-Learning courses are known as ‘Mandatory Training’, which means workers within Health and Social Care are required to undertake adequate induction training and annual refresher training to ensure they remain up-to-date with regulatory requirements. These training courses commonly include:

  • Health and Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Infection Prevention and Control
  • Manual Handling
  • Food Hygiene and Food Safety Awareness

These e-Learning courses are recommended by the Health and Social Care quality control, to help organisations stay aligned with basic regulatory requirements when on-boarding and training staff.
