Accredited online training for Support Workers
Essential knowledge for all support workers
Support work is an incredibly rewarding career. Increase your skills and become even more incredible. It’s surprisingly simple with HL Online Training.
You’re doing an amazing job. To ensure your skills remain relevant, it’s important to review your training. We’ve designed straightforward, online courses that are essential learning for anyone who works with people – including family support workers, residential support workers, mental health support workers, and healthcare support workers in all fields.
Support work asks a lot of you, and you’ll need background knowledge on a wide variety of topics to bring the best to your job. Topics that we recommend for support workers include Safeguarding (vulnerable adults as well as children), Food Safety, Moving & Handling, First Aid, and Fire Safety. More specialised courses include Autism, End of Life Care, Mental Capacity Act/DOLS, Verification of Death, and Catheterisation. Choose one or make savings by buying a bundle.
You can also obtain your Care Certificate, which is the new professional standard for all healthcare support workers. It’s easy to study online, fitting it around your work and family life. The total time required is 17 hours, but you will receive a CPD certificate for this time.
