    Default On-line courses

    This area gives details of on-line courses available with Virtual College some of the course I have done myself, where applicable there is a review.

    You cannot start a new thread in this area but you can reply to the threads to ask questions.

    Hi Pauline,

    Do you know if there is an online course for safeguarding children level 2. My LA only has a 2 day course next March which is midweek, I don't want to wait this long.

    Regards Wendy

    Hi Wendy

    I couldn't find one, did it have to be level 2? if you have already done one couldn't you do the refresher course?

    Not that I know of. It depends what you call expensive, there are the online courses that myself and others have done here: http://childmindinghelp.co.uk/forum/...ad.php?t=15075

    The statutory requirements of the Eyfs state that you must attend (go to a training place) a 12 hour approved paediatric first aid course.

    I am afraid there are no short cuts or approved online courses.

    We all have to blow into the dummies and spend 12 hours every 3 years making sure we know what to do in an emergency.

    Hi there!

    I have just started a level 2 certificate for the children and young peoples workforce, hhmm is this a level 2 diploma which is a stage higher than the one you have to have to register as a childminder?! So confusing!!! Have they just change the name?

    Anyway, I have just registered and am waiting for my on-line system to start the course. Am so excited!!

    Would I be able to have the password to post on the forums here to chat about the coursework?

    Thanks for your help, Claire Xxx

    The only one I could find was Equality and Diversity in the workplace, not sure if that would cover what you want.

    Thanks for looking Pauline I have found one called Common Core of skills & knowledge.
    It says it covers

    An overview of every child matters & integrated working principles and values.
    Equality and Inclusion & anti-discrimatory practice
    Person centred approaches
    Confidentiality, information sharing and record keeping.

    I have sent a txt to Beetlejuice as she is on the committee and asked if this one is ok

    Well done Solly, is it this one, I didn't read the blurb so missed that it included 'inclusion'

    Common Core Skills

    Hope you enjoy it if you do it.

    Default NCMA safeguarding course

    Has anyone done the NCMA on-line safeguarding course? Just wondering if it's worthwhile, as would be easier to fit in to daily life

    Hi , hope you can put me in the right direction

    my development worker has suggested online learning to add to my experience and gave me this link <link removed as it does not work now>

    unfortunately due to change in government it appears that everything is inaccessible and certainly not working at the moment

    where can i go now for online training , id love to do some EYFS training , maybe something about dealing with challenging behaviour and eventually I want to get into Family support work so anything that will help there too would be great

    Im a single parent and have to work all hours minding just to pay the bills so attending college is not an option

    I already have nvq3 and also foundation year childrens nursing so really looking for little top ups in specific areas im interested in to boost my CV and broaden my knowledge of course

    Thanks in advance

    Sally

    Hi Sally

    All the National Strategies site is gone now as you have found.

    Have you had a look through the various online courses listed in this section?

    Or if you go on the main Virtual College site you will find more, there might be something to suit you but it really depends what you are looking for and how much money and time you want to spend on a course.

    Hi Mammarya, I am thinking of doing this next year and was just wondering what you thought of it? was going to do the OCR/NVQ but it is double the price, is it a good substitute?

    looking forward to hearing from you?

    Thanks
    Sharon
