10 reviews for Care Act 2014 – Full Training Suite

  • A lot good information . Very interesting. Excellent use of case examples used to get message across clearly.

  • Really informative and helped clarify misunderstandings I had. Informative and clear in making distinctions between appropriate individual, independent advocate and IMCA.

  • This course was very useful as I was not confident with the carers eligibility within the new care act. Very comprehensive course, with a strong focus on the values of personalisation and the CA.

  • I found the course interesting and engaging and enjoyed the interactive elements. Excellent online course, very informative.

  • My knowledge about carers assessments, eligibility and the provision for services to meet carers needs has been improved. I find this course very informative and clearly documented throughout.

  • Better than other training I have accessed on Information and Advice / Care Act. Learning about the one page plan was interesting and how this can be applied across different settings.

  • Good information to know, clear and concise on the criteria for an advocate which is useful. A lot of information given, easy to understand and example makes it easier to apply to a situation.

  • Good to get an overview of commissioning and joint working clear and easy to absorb information. Found this very useful and feel we should do this training on a regular basis.

  • Good information and tools for person centred planning and general information and summary on care support plan. The course held your attention and therefore achieved what it set out to.

  • Excellent information on deferred payment and equity and how care costs are calculated. Charging and Financial Assessment e-learning course was very informative.
