Skills for Care endorses My Learning Cloud for essential social care training during pandemic


My Learning Cloud, an online training platform for the health and social care sectors, is offering ten free courses to all providers in response to Skills for Care’s ‘COVID-19 – Essential Training’ guidance.

The announcement is an enhancement of the company’s independent offer, announced last month.

Skills for Care has identified training that remains a priority during the pandemic to ensure there is a skilled and competent workforce, and endorsed learning providers delivering the training, including My Learning Cloud.
