Health and Social Care e-Learning
When an organisation within Health and Social Care adopts and implements a Learning Management System (LMS) and aligns this with their own a strategy for Learning and Development, it helps to build up and maintain a compliance record for both the organisation and the learner alike. This helps track all Learning and Development activities allocated in a record for Learners to keep on top of their own development. This can be the beginning of your organisations Health and Social Care e-Learning journey.
The Health and Social Care sector holds great career opportunities for anyone new to the sector and allows personal development, which is critical across the sector to ensure you retain your workforce. Continued Personal Development, known as CPD, is a great way to allow all your new recruits to start on the Care Certificate and continue their Learning and Development journey with more specific courses related to their day-to-day role as a care-worker. This will also encourage staff members to stay within your organisation with their own CPD goals being taken into consideration, improving staff retention.
