THE provider of an online training course in social care has achieved a national first after being rated as ‘excellent’ by a national body.
Training provider Kwango, in Midsummer Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes, is understood to be the first organisation to have its e-learning course rated excellent by the National Skills Academy for Social Care.
The review panel, comprising representatives of the Skills Academy, employers and training providers, was chaired by Judith Salmon, vice chair of the Association for Care Training and Assessment Networks, (ACTAN).
Having gained the Excellence Award they will now be able to use the Skills Academy quality mark in all their advertising materials.
Debbie Sorkin, director of engagement at the Skills Academy said: “We know that improved training means better care. We want employers to be able to make choices that will enable them to be sure their staff are getting the best possible training, and they are investing wisely in developing staff.”
Steve Gould, director of Kwango, said: “This is a means of quality assuring our e-learning courses and our customers can be confident our organisation and programmes have passed the rigorous scrutiny necessary to achieve this endorsement.”
