At a time when the Health & Social Care sector has been under immense pressure, the pandemic has only exacerbated this and increased the difficulties in training and recruitment. White’s Training, a Norfolk-based training provider for the sector, has been innovating new ways to combat the increasing difficulties the sector faces. One such innovation is their new e-learning platform, White’s Digital.
White’s Digital is a new e-learning platform, developed by White’s Training, to improve the accessibility to specialised training courses within the sector. High quality care is now more important than ever and quality training is becoming more and more vital in recent times, with this importance only increasing as time goes by.
It’s critical the nationwide carer shortage is combated by improving recruitment and retention and ongoing education/training is a major factor in the solution. Employers with turnover rates of less than 10% reported that one of their main contributing factors to staff retention was investing in learning and development (94%)¹. For the majority of employers, staff turnover rates have remained high across the sector and 2020/21 saw 34.4% of workers leaving their role².
With this idea of empowering care workers with the knowledge and skills to improve care delivery, White’s Training created an online platform that is easy to navigate and easy to complete so that care workers can have access to the best learning experience. While learners have the ability to save courses progress and complete them quicker, on the other hand, employers can keep track of their trainees through an online interface and view learner progress and compliance in one place.
Training on your terms
At home? On the go? This online training platform has care workers’ best interests at the centre of everything they do with access to training anytime and anywhere. White’s Digital Training offers a unique level of flexibility and accessibility to users, needing only an internet enabled device, they can access their training no matter where they are or what time of day it is. It’s a platform that works around the user, enabling them to learn at times that are optimal for them.
White’s Digital Training offers an extensive selection of courses, including some such as ‘Basic Life Support’, ‘Fluids, Nutrition & Food Safety’ and ‘Mental Health, Dementia & Learning Disability’, meaning all aspects of care work are catered for on one platform. White’s Digital Training wants to offer a seamless learning experience in such a way that courses can be perfectly tailored to each individual to fit around their life schedule and learners can pick courses up where they left off.
Training is developed and delivered by experienced healthcare professionals who understand the unique challenges carers face everyday. They respect time pressures and budget limitations, which means that all of their courses are efficient and quality driven with high levels of interactivity that give learners the ability to understand and train new concepts.
Accessible to learners and businesses alike
While the platform has been designed to enhance the experience of learning for the users, the platform also caters to businesses too. Care providers can purchase courses in bulk, providing great value for money. Managers can also track the progress of their team members, enabling them to provide extra support to those that are struggling.
Healthcare managers will have a range of tools aimed to reduce the pain of organising training for employees. With tracking tools allowing managers to see the progress of their learners’ courses, to the cost effective options of purchasing courses on large scales, White’s Digital Training provides a unique platform that is a fully flexible e-learning solution for healthcare providers and professionals.
Through platforms like White’s Digital Training, which creates accelerated pathways to higher education for direct care workers, White’s Digital Training is pushing the sector forward by helping caregivers gain necessary skills, education, and training to deliver better care and succeed in their careers, while opening new avenues to grow the health and social care workforce.
