I have been using the SCIE e-learning resources and Social Care TV. I find these extremely useful and informative, they are presented in a way which makes learning enjoyable. I would like to take an online course which gives me a qualification that shows that I have an understanding of the work I do regards looking after the elderly/vulnerable. Has anyone any experience of NCFE qualifications and providers? They are supposed to be the equivalent to NVQ's. This is a convenient way for me to continue my CPD as I find it difficult to take time off to attend more formal training.

I agree the social care TV pieces are really interesting. I occasionally highlight them in or bulletin and we have supported them to do a piece on Micro-providers which should see the light of day sometime in the spring.

I think the eLearning idea is very interesting and the new Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) which is replacing the National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) might well lend itself to this approach althougyh acreditation may still require some direct observations. I am due to meet with Skills for Care (the sector workforce development agency) soon and will raise this with them and see what might be possible. It would be interesting to hear from other if this approach would be helpful.
