Online Training


The Social Care Training Hub will always be an advocate of face to face training as it is a proven method of delivering effective learning outcomes. However, the growing issues of low numbers or learners in remote places is something The Social Care Training Hub has embraced, which has led us to develop the UK’s most advanced Online Learning Management System.

In 2015 we commissioned an extensive study which reached out to the clients within the sectors of within the CLA (children looked after) sector asking each client what they loved about their current online providers but also what they would like to see from a potential new online provider.

The biggest issues for most clients regarding our competitor’s systems and online courses was that a lot of the content was more akin to reading a book, and their purchased credits would expire. The desire for most clients was to have access to online courses which engaged learners and offered activities, games, reading, and videos, and the credits purchased to never expire. We delivered on all of these points.

As of today, we have the UK’s most functional and easy to use LMS learning platform and an array of 140 plus mandatory, specialist and advanced online courses built specifically for the CLA (children looked after) sector. In addition to great functionality we are also the only provider in the UK that offers a free specialist course every 4 weeks.

The Social Care Training Hub is also the only online provider to offer a downloadable course related handbook with each and every course, plus an LOR (Learning Outcome Review) which enables the learner to log what they have learnt and how they will implement their new skills with the young people in their care.

Online training has become a necessity. The Social Care Training Hub has made it possible to deliver exceptional learning outcomes and leads the way in producing online courses which are relevant, fun, and engaging.

Below you will discover details of the four unique units of each and every online course we offer:



Interactive with a unique blend of games, activities, reading, and videos delivering all of the core learning.



A simple assessment based on the course to gauge what information has been retained.



An extensive course related handbook to download and keep.


Learning Outcome

A questionnaire that asks the learner what they have learnt and how they will implement it in their work with the young people in their care.
