Online Learning Provider My Learning Cloud has been developing a series of eLearning courses specifically for care homes in Scotland and Wales as part of its mission to make its courses as relevant as possible to the regions of the UK.
More than 10 new Scottish-specific courses are being launched this month to meet local legislation and health and care regulations around areas such as Duty of Care, Health and Safety and Challenging Behaviour.
“Any training must reflect how and where people work and there are nuances when it comes to care in Scotland and Wales,” says the company’s chief cloud Steven Embleton.
My Learning Cloud now has more than 70 CPD Certified course titles alongside its innovative Learning MOT. These are provided within a Learning Management System allowing a fully blended approach to learning and development, and are endorsed by Skills For Care.
“We have listened to our clients who did not want to pay for training for the sake of it,” says Embleton. “The Learning MOT tool enables learners to assess their level of knowledge across 20 areas via a questionnaire so they avoid unnecessary learning. We want to empower them.”
He says there has been a cultural shift in recent years in the mindset of many care homes who now accept the positive role that technology can play in delivering and undertaking training.
