Each year employers and workers in the Social care, Children's and Early Years sector spend more than £3bn upon workforce development activity.

Finding the right learning solution, whether it is training, a qualification or a resource such as a book or DVD, can be a hit or miss affair for employers.


Please find a selection of resources, powered by the Learn from Learning catalogue. For the full selection please go to www.learnfromlearning.co.uk

Learn from Learning is a free comparison website providing information about the range of workforce development solutions available to sector employers, workers and service users. It includes an online evaluation tool to help employers manage learning better and get better value for money, as well accessing the best free learning materials available on the web.

The Learn from Learning project is now closing as the website, evaluation and assessment tools have been created and are freely available to employers and learners across the social work, social care and early years sector. You can download the Project evaluation report here.

We have produced a short briefing and FAQs for Employers. And a short briefing and FAQs for Learning Providers too.

The Learn from Learning evaluation tool has been developed for use with service users and provides a simple measure of how learning is expected to improve quality of life (Physical & emotional health, Social life and Dignity etc.). The tool relates learning directly to performance at work in terms of the quality of care being provided. The tool is available as a booklet that workers can print out and use with service users.

A version of the evaluation tool for use with parents and families of children and young people has also been developed - Learning Evaluation tool for use with parents, carers & families
