The Academy is delighted that you are applying for a Children’s Workforce course as it is vital that anyone in a paid or unpaid role and whether working with children and families, or solely working with adults who are parents or carers, has access to learning activity that supports their knowledge and confidence. It is also important that they understand the responsibility they have to promote the welfare of children and young people, and recognise and report any indicators of abuse - physical, emotional, sexual or neglect.
The Academy is pleased to announce that learners can now self-register for access to over 50 e-learning courses. To view all the available courses please click here. Once logged in please use the ‘Requested Learning Tab’ to request the new course you wish to carry out.

The courses are free of charge to all workers paid or volunteering who are working in or supporting young people in Central Bedfordshire.
Once you start your on-line learning course you have 6 weeks to complete it. If you do not complete the course within 6 weeks your department/organisation may be charged for the cost of the course at £25 + VAT.
If you do not complete the course then the money spent has been wasted and your learning need has not been met, so in the interest of yourself and all local services to children please complete the course within 6 weeks.
How long it will take
Once you have registered via the link below then you will receive an email and password within a matter of minutes. You can then login to your Learner Record straight away and request your course(s) via your ‘Requested Learning Tab’ - all requested courses will then appear instantly on your ‘Active Learning Tab’. Each course takes approximately 1-3 hours to complete with a short test at the end. If you have passed then you will be able to print a certificate of completion. You do not have to complete the training all at once, you can dip in and out of the module, at work or at home and the system will monitor your progress.
