25/10/2015 EH
Easy to use, informative and the small tests at the end of each module certainly helped
21/10/2015 WL
The interactive nature keeps you interested and motivated to complete it. I really enjoyed learning about safeguarding in this way and is much better than the yearly refreshers that go over the same issues.
19/10/2015 TH
Yes, the system is perfect for me to update my training from home, being a lone parent I am often unable to attend training sessions so they are very helpful for people such as myself!
18/09/2015 JC
I especially liked the format for the course, I liked the voice over and the interactive way it unfolded, it made it more interesting and I think it helped the information sink in better
CM 07/08/2015
Multiple choice questions at the end of each topic helped to consolidate learning and check understanding
KT 11/06/2015
I liked the first part which presented the evolution of acts and how people with disabilities were first referred to as 'lunatics' and so on. It is absolutely frightening how uneducated we, as a society, were a hundred years ago. We made a lot of progress but much more can still be improved
FA 14/05/2015
The module it's self was easy to read, I liked the humour in parts which made it easier to just get through it rather than just having a lecture of information being read at you. I also liked the quiz format because it made the information much easier to understand
LM 27/04/2015
The whole system was easy to navigate and understand, interesting layout which made it easy and informative
KB 19/04/2015
I Liked the practice questions and the variety of ways the information is presented in order to make it memorable
RH 12/04/2015
Just that it was really easy to use from the moment I signed in to the moment I printed the certificate after passing the course
MW 08/04/2015
The Course gives you ample time to read through and take in information without continuing on to next sections until you're ready
JB 06/04/2015
I liked that it gave you a lot of detail about what goes on when Acts came in, what parent/cares views where, the same with the young people even how hard it can be for the siblings in the house hold. It really opened my eyes as to how difficult it can be for everyone in one house hold with a brother/ sister or daughter or son with a disability, and I'm grateful to be working for a company that can provide that safe place to go and see friends and enjoy other peoples company
MS 09/03/2015
I enjoyed the idea of showing aspects from a child's point of view as well as contrasting it with the parents point of view and making it interactive through clicking on the children etc
SO 08/02/2015
Easy to use - all-information was provided and the ability to come back to course at your own leisure
