Updated Kwango Domestic Violence and Abuse E-Learning

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Kwango is pleased to announce that we have updated our Domestic Violence and Abuse E-Learning course in line with the government’s new definition of it.

In addition to our other popular Adult, Healthcare and Children’s E-Learning courses, Domestic Violence and Abuse e-learning is an awareness- level programme designed to help Social Care, Health Care, Education and Private, Voluntary and Independent sector staff in a number of ways.

These include understanding the key concepts of Domestic Violence and Abuse; recognising the signs and symptoms of Domestic Violence and Abuse; understanding the potentially serious and wide-ranging impact on individuals and families; dealing with disclosure of abuse; developing an understanding about the range of support services available and understanding the complexities that often surround Domestic Violence and Abuse.

We have had many positive responses from clients already using the updated version. These include Isobel Dougan,

Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Training Coordinator who comments:

“Kwango’s DVA E-L is used by us to reach ‘000s of learners across all our Local Safeguarding Children and Adult Boards to raise awareness; as a pre-learner ahead of training and as a constant refresher. This new version is up to date for 2013 and in line with the Home office changes.  It is highly interactive and engaging and includes interviews with some of our own survivors.”

and Jo Plaster, Essex Integrated Working Workforce Manager who comments:

“The Kwango online learning modules provide us with a flexible approach to the learning and development needs of practitioners in Essex, enabling access at their own convenience, pace and it reduces the overall time to gain valuable knowledge.

The Domestic Violence and Abuse module 2013 raises awareness of the signs and symptoms and the impact on children and families. In Essex it is accessed by a wide range of practitioners working in Early Years, Education, Health, Local Authority, Councils and Voluntary services.”

As with Gloucestershire and Essex, can we help you get clear messages out to the whole of your workforce with our up to date Domestic Violence and Abuse E-Learning course?

Our high quality course contains photo-animated interviews with Domestic Violence and Abuse survivors and quizzes to further engage learners.  As with all our courses, we only charge a ‘one- off’ fee for an indefinite unlimited licence.  It can be customised for each individual organisation and allows electronic tracking of user and usage.  It can also be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which gives learners both the advantage and flexibility of completing the course at their own pace and to suit their work schedule.
