E-learning resources

If you can’t find the training your staff need locally or need to reduce the travel time and costs associated with training, the internet is a valuable resource in ensuring your staff continue to develop and are up to date with key areas of adult social care.

Some websites that offer relevant information and e-learning modules are listed here.

If you use a website that isn’t listed, please contact Hannah Blower  as other providers may find this information valuable and we can list it here. 

New videos about positive behaviour support (PBS)

PBS is a person-centred approach to supporting people who display behaviours which challenge. It’s important that adult social care workers have the right skills and knowledge to use this approach and we can help. Skills for Care has worked with the Challenging Behaviour Foundation to develop three new videos.

What is PBS?

Putting PBS into practice

If you’re new to this approach, read these FAQs about how PBS can help you deliver high quality support for people who display behaviour that challenges. They’ve also spoken to Eldertree Lodge who have used this approach. They’ve shared their story about how it’s decreased the number of incidents of behaviours which challenge and improved health and wellbeing. Read their case study here.
