Materials from a number of sources have been gathered to support your learning. These will be of particular value if you work in a personalised service and have difficulty attending face-to-face training or where no e-learning alternative is available. These materials can also be used as additional information for courses you have completed.
However these materials do not replace courses which are essential training for your job. If you are unclear about what else you need to become knowledgeable in any topic you should seek the advice of your line manager or Training and Development Officer.
