E-learning image


Grounded in an understanding of the needs of children and young people, KCA Online is a key part of our connected learning approach. The online courses aim to develop knowledge, skills and reflection not by taking people out of their workplace, but rather by sending them to explore their workplace and their work relationships as part of an ongoing learning journey.

Activities and exercises require learners to 'stop and think' or 'go and do' and to record their discoveries in their online journal. With the facility for the journal to be shared with a designated learning mentor as a space for online reflective discussion, this makes for superb work-based learning, promoting practical application and professional conversations. Although the learning is guided online, with input from experts, in reality people are learning from and alongside their managers, colleagues and service users.

While e-learning needs to be relevant and inspiring for practitioners, it also needs to meet the needs of an organisation, and this is one of the areas where our provision excels. When we asked training administrators what they needed from their ideal e-learning system they told us:

portfolio building, certification, group learners into departments, upload our own resources, simple admin, any device, any browser, learner archiving, customised logo/branding, visual accessibility, sophisticated reporting, access on iPad/smartphone, up-to-date, mapped to qualifications, view learner feedback, multiple administrators, randomised MCQs, clear progress reporting, responsive, HTTPS security, intuitive, autosave, expert content

Our continuing aim is to meet all these needs and more.
