About health and social care training

Our health and social care service offers engaging learning and teaching resources aligned to the curriculum (supporting learning in every mandatory unit at levels two and three). You'll have access to over 90 resources covering all mandatory units including dementia and learning difficulties. They are compliant with National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ), Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) and National Occupational Standards (NOS). Links to the qualifications and standards are explicit throughout the individual learning objects.

These resources were created by leading online learning developer Virtual College, using a subject matter expert to ensure they are accurate and practical.

You can search by resource type, level and unit to find learning objects that directly support your course progress and encourage independent thinking and learning. The content is fresh and innovative with videos, guides, quizzes, games and a mix of other interactive resources.

This training service is a paid-for, licensed service that will develop in response to user feedback and as the curriculum evolves.
