Care homes are owned and managed by a wide range of organisations, including local authorities, the NHS, and organisations from the private and voluntary sectors.

They differ from other workplaces because they are not only places of work; they are also homes for their residents.

They should be places where the dignity and freedom of the residents is respected, and where everyone’s health and safety is managed effectively.

To achieve this, everyone involved must understand their responsibilities.

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.
