When introducing epilepsy, we must first recognise that there are around 40 different types of seizures. Statistics show that one in five people will have a seizure at some time in their life although only some of these will be caused by epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and the nervous system and is covered by the Equality Act 2010. The condition can affect people for only a portion of their life, or it can be lifelong. Because of the varied nature of the condition an awareness of epilepsy and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure is incredibly useful for those who work in health and social care.

About our Courses

How our elearning courses work

Specialist online video production methods ensure extremely fast, high-quality streaming. A combination of the presenter, animations and quiz-style questions keeps learners interested and stimulated.

Our content and Learning Management System (LMS) are constructed to provide a set of multiple-choice questions after each module.   These help embed the learning in trainees’ memories and allow managers to check the training has been completed and understood.

When a candidate successfully completes a course, they will automatically receive a system-generated certificate.

Training managers can also use our course management portal to keep records and track learner progress.

Trainee Experience

A powerful combination of embedded presenters, live video footage and animated graphics immediately grabs learner interest and holds attention.

Face-to-face eye contact builds trust, triggers emotion and delivers a memorable tone and style, while communicating the essence of the learning content.

The overall result is increased learner engagement and the creation of a lasting, positive impression.

Your Learning Management System

The customer dashboard is where the candidates go to do the training. Learning manager can also use the dashboard to manage any number of candidates. It’s mobile-responsive and can deliver extensive reports. If needed, it will work side-by-side with an existing LMS, via an open API.

Checking on Learning

The candidate-facing areas are constructed so that a set of multiple-choice questions are introduced after each module. Following successful completion of a course, candidates will receive a system-generated certificate.​

The question sections of our courses use a variety of techniques.

For example, in the Fire Safety courses, candidates are presented with certain types of fire and have to select the image of the appropriate extinguisher.

We also make use of various exam canvasses to suit all exam types and random question banks. We can feature a wide variety of online questions, including, multiple-choice, drag and drop, surveys, quizzes, answers in free-text exams and assignments.
