eLearning providers won't need to attend a workshop as the process is different to the normal framework. You will, however, need to submit one of your learning programmes as evidence, along with your organisational evidence.
Endorsement costs £1,500.00 + VAT which includes your organisation and the submission and approval of one of your online programmes.
Once you've been endorsed, additional programme endorsement costs will be determined on an individual basis. It will depend on the length of programme and how many you want to be endorsed. Contact us to find out more information.
Why are we endorsing eLearning?
Repeated demands from the sector meant we had to expand the Endorsement Framework to include online learning. We collaborated with an established online learning provider to develop the framework and ensure that providers could gather sufficient evidence.
The quality checks, processes and documentation can now accommodate the type of evidence that e-learning providers are able to produce, whilst carefully upholding the robustness of the framework, our quality mark and reputation.
Is Skills for Care now endorsing Care Certificate programmes?
Skills for Care endorses the learning provider and, where requested and subject to due process, endorses learning programmes.
However, we don't support the acquisition of the Care Certificate through e-learning alone as there is an element of assessed practice required by the employer to certify achievement.
“The process of endorsement was our opportunity to get an important impartial view on the way we work and develop. It gave us an opportunity to measure ourselves against a set of standards/requirements to ensure we’re working in the best way possible. As an organisation, we found the process robust and fair.”
Steven Embleton, CEO and Chief Cloud, My Learning Cloud. Recognised Provider – eLearning
