Here at Care Academy we are always looking for ways to improve the range of products and services avaialable to clients and as 2008 draws to a close here is a sneak preview of some of the exciting developments in the pipeline for 2009:

  • Skills for Life audit tool to assist organisations with the assessment of numeracy and literacy skills. The audit tool is being created with a specific focus on care sector questions and scenarios and will form the basis for our 'learning pathway' concept, taking learners from induction through to NVQ and beyond.
  • A range of on-line and tutor led numeracy and literacy programmes to support the delivery of Skills for Life programmes.
  • Integrated learning content and e-portfolio solution to streamline the delivery, tracking and attainment of NVQ qualifications. A key feature of the system will be access to on-demand reporting specifically created to meet the requirements for access to funding streams.
  • Specialised courses to address key topics including:
    • Dementia
    • Risk Assessment
    • End of Life
    • Administration of Medication
    • Equality and Diversity
    • Managing Challanging Behaviour
    • Lone Working
    • Infection Prevention and Control
    • COSHH
  • Housing365 – a dedicated solution created specifically to provide Health and Safety training to Housing Assocaitions.
