Human Rights Day

ETL updatesPosted by Amanda Durnall Mon, December 10, 2018 13:54:53

Human Rights Day, today, December 10th 2018, marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being -- regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. [...] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." -- Eleanor Roosevelt

The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others.

Let's stand up for equality, justice and human dignity!





Mandatory training launch!

ETL updatesPosted by Lynsey Godfrey Fri, November 30, 2018 13:25:19
We are really excited to launch our mandatory training courses for care providers. We designed our courses in response to the feedback we received from care employers. They spoke and we listened!
We've maintained our core value: REAL SKILLS FOR REAL PEOPLE IN REAL WORKPLACES, by creating sessions that are delivered by an experienced Tutor to learners within their workplace. Our courses ensure learners leave a session having gained knowledge to be applied to their practice. Employers will achieve good value for money by benefitting from actual learning and development for their care teams and service users will benefit too from a well trained, knowledgable and highly skilled provider.

Spaces are already booking up quickly as many care employers have been keen to secure real training delivery rather than relying on electronic courses or videos to support staff development.


We have designed courses and course materials for the core mandatory training topics for care providers and employers can choose the sessions they need to create their own bespoke packages to meet the needs of their setting.
We offer:

Health and Safety Awareness

Fire Safety Awareness

Infection Prevention and Control

Moving and Handling of People

Medication Awareness

Dementia Awareness

Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Libery Safeguards Awareness

Communication and Record Keeping

Person Centred Care

Food Safety Awareness

Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults

Emergency First Aid Awareness

And many more....

All details can be found on our website, contact us for further information or book now to secure your sessions. Let's get back to basics ......

Real support for training costs

ETL updatesPosted by Lynsey Godfrey Fri, September 21, 2018 17:12:08
Many Care managers are not aware of all of the options available to Health and Social Care employers to help them meet the costs of their training and development.
We are working with many employers to identify their training needs and then deliver the training they need.
One of the first obstacles for most Managers is the inevitable cost of training.
We discuss the training requirements of each organisation and always explain our delivery. We are very proud of the training and learning we provide and employers agree that quality should be the highest priority.
When we explain our product to employers they like what we have to offer:

Face to face teaching and support
Real learning resources provided
Online portfolios that can be accessed by employers to monitor progress
Experienced Tutors

Bespoke delivery

However, cost can overshadow their wish to provide genuine high quality learning.
We are recommending that Health and Social Care employers access and use the National Minimum Data Set (NMDS) to record and manage their staff training and development data. Doing so not only provides the employer with a robust record of training but then achieves eligibility to reclaim costs of learning and development.

Once eligible, employers can apply to the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) to reclaim the costs of eligible staff training. We are supporting many employers to use this resource to enable them not to compromise on the quality of the training they choose.

The Apprenticeship Levy

ETL updatesPosted by Amanda Durnall Thu, August 30, 2018 15:26:01
The Apprenticeship Levy is part of the government’s plan to increase the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships. The Levy is a new tax which aims to fund three million new Apprenticeships in England by 2020 and came into effect in April 2017. Funds will expire 24 months after they enter your (DAS) account unless you spend them on apprenticeship training. We understand that a there are a number of organisations not using their levy account and many still have not even registered! We can help with this! Contact us for our free guide to accessing your levy account - it's your money to spend on quality training :-) #apprenticeships #apprenticeship #apprenticeshiplevy #earlyyears #healthandsocialcare #training #trainingprovider #qualifications
