KIDS Direct Short Breaks

For disabled children, young people and their families

KIDS eLearning

Workforce development is a challenge that faces everyone working with disabled children, young people and their families. To address these challenges KIDS developed over 40 hours of high quality eLearning to meet level 2 National Occupational Standards in Care, Youth Work and Play.

KIDS eLearning is an incredibly effective internet-based training solution and is perfect for training in your home, office or remote locations.

This eLearning suite contains over 45 modules and can be used by everyone who has contact with disabled children and young people. It is currently being used by Short Break workers, volunteers, sessional staff, youth & children's workers and permanent employees both within KIDS and also in local authorities and other organisations. The eLearning suite is flexible enough to cover a range of different requirements − from those who need a simple introduction and overview through to those working with disabled children and young people on a daily basis.
