E-Learning Resources


Gloucestershire County Council has commissioned e-learning Programmes for Adult Social Care and Support Services within Gloucestershire. E-learning provides modern, flexible and easily accessible learning; it allows anyone in Gloucestershire e.g. paid staff, unpaid carers and people who access social care services, to gain upto- date knowledge on a range of topics.

Why E-Learning?
E-learning can give you the freedom to learn when and where you want and at your own pace. You can study a wide range of subjects which can be used as part of a blended approach with other learning methods.

Benefits of e-learning include:
• Up to date online resources;
• Learning can fit around personal commitments and professional work;
• Can be useful if you have mobility or health problems that make travel to, or attendance at, training sessions difficult;
• Can be useful for staff who work irregular hours.

Who can access?
These programmes can be used free of charge by anyone in Gloucestershire and may be useful for carers, volunteers and the wider community – in fact, anyone who works with, or comes into contact with, adults with care and support needs.

As many of you will have seen Kwango will cease trading at the end of July 2018. Due to how widely used these modules are within the sector we have moved the following Kwango Modules over to a new E-Learning Platform called

LearnPro Community:

  • Safeguarding Adults under the Care Act
  • Safeguarding Leadership
  • Safeguarding Children
  • Dementia
  • Mental Capacity Act
  • Personal Assistant Induction
  • Stroke Pathway
  • Better Health / Better Lives (Learning Disabilities)
  • Person Centred Thinking
  • Understanding Autism
  • Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLs)
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Continence
  • Food, Safety, Infection Control, Nutrition and Hydration

Accessing this platform differs to Kwango in that rather than a user logging in with generic account details, each user will need to register individually and choose an organisation / service area to assign their account to. LearnPro Community is the Kwango replacement for Gloucestershire County Council’s Multi-Agency Partners  please contact training enquiries (details below) to get the LearnPro Community user guide and access link. As Kwango was, the LearnPro E-Learning Modules are free of charge to anyone who lives is or works in Gloucestershire. If you experience any difficult registering or accessing LearnPro please get in touch with: proudtolearn@gloucestershire.gov.uk / 01452 324306
