Distance learning courses in infection control

Telford College is helping employers upskill their staff to cope with the coronavirus crisis, by offering distance learning courses in healthcare and infection control.

The programme includes a level two distance learning certificate in the Principles of the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare Settings.

The West Midlands Combined Authority is promoting the college’s courses on a new advice portal, set up to collate some of the region’s most valuable online courses.

Sue Gomer (pictured), Telford College’s assistant principal for employer engagement, said: “Our care distance learning courses are perfect for employers who need staff to be upskilled to cope with current care demands across the region.

“We are seeing hundreds of thousands of people flocking to the NHS to offer their help, and during these uncertain times, there may be the need for individuals or businesses to develop new skills.

“The current circumstances highlight that few things are more important in healthcare settings than stringent infection prevention and control measures.

“Poor hygiene and cleanliness procedures can have serious ramifications for patients, staff and organisations alike. It’s crucial that all staff within a health-care environment understand their role in relation to infection prevention and control.

“The Principles of the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare Settings distance learning course is ideal for anyone who works, or would like to work, in a healthcare setting.

“It looks at the meaning and importance of infection control, as well as the causes of infections and the conditions in which they thrive and spread. It also outlines the methods used to prevent and control the spread of infection.”

The West Midlands Combined Authority says: “During these uncertain times there may be the need for individuals or businesses to develop new skills.

“We have collated a list of online courses that can help with anything from online and mobile banking for individuals to marketing for businesses. 

“The coronavirus outbreak is transforming the way we live and work. Here at West Midlands Combined Authority we recognise the serious and unprecedented nature of this situation and are working hard to maintain essential services to businesses and residents and to keep our communities safe.
