What is e-Learning for Health and Social care?
As a sector, Health and Social Care relies on skilled individuals that support the needs of their local communities, families and vulnerable individuals. Working within Health and Social Care can provide you with a very rewarding career and excellent Continued Personal Development (CPD) opportunities that will support you and your organisation to deliver higher standards of care. When joining a Health and Social Care organisation, at any point in your career, they will provide relevant training to support you as a Health and Social Care worker and this will include e-Learning courses that are both mandatory for your role and Continued Personal Development (CPD), as we mentioned previously.
How is e-Learning Delivered to a Care Worker?
Most Health and Social Care organisations will have their own Learning and Development strategy which will combine both onboarding for new recruits and annual refresher training for existing staff. Although some smaller organisations may approach their Learning and Development differently due to less staff to develop, larger organisations will usually have a structured training plan which will include every member of staff, regardless of their role. These larger organisations may use specific software designed to help them manage all aspects of their Learning and Development, called a Learning Management System, also known as an LMS.

What am I looking for in an e-Learning course for Health and Social Care?
As we mentioned, within Health and Social Care, there are courses known as ‘Mandatory Training’ courses, 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 within Health and Social Care commonly include:
- Health and Safety
- Fire Safety
- Equality and Diversity
- Prevention and Control
- Manual Handling
- Food Hygiene/ Food Safety Awareness
My Learning Cloud provide these e-Learning courses as standard on all our Learning Management Systems so your organisation stays aligned with basic regulatory requirements for the Health and Social Care sector.
