Steven Embleton, Chief Cloud at My Learning Cloud, has this to say.
“We are thrilled to be an early adopter of this initiative, and to work closely with Skills for Care and CQC to make it a success. This scheme builds upon our earlier independent offer of help to the industry by increasing the number of courses we can offer to care organisations.
The My Learning Cloud team have been working round the clock for the last 72 hours to ensure we can deliver exactly what our sector needs at this time.”
