I have been working mostly behind the scenes in SRC over the past year adapting SRC learning resources for our new Moodle Learning Platform.
Moodle is an online learning platform that is used in learning and education that allows learners opportunities to engage with courses at a convenient time and access resources from a central point regardless of where they live.
This work has been a privilege and a labour of love! There have been bumps in the road but mostly there have been amazing opportunities as I worked alongside my colleagues at SRC, CPD Certification Service and Titus UK.
We now have 5 CPD accredited courses ready to launch and they all focus on recovery. This is a unique approach and my colleagues with lived experience in SRC have shared their knowledge, experience and wisdom to give an authentic voice to the theory of recovery.
I have learned so much over the past year! Developing and refining this learning ready for our launch was no easy feat but I never doubted that the courses could be developed to meet the accreditation requirements for the CPD Certification Service.
Here are some main takeaways about SRC’s new Learning Platform:
Goodbye dull workbooks!
Our Learning Platform is visually appealing and has content that is colourful, engaging and unique to SRC.
Our Moodle Learning Platform is accredited!
The 5 courses in Moodle start with Recovery Essentials part 1 and then follow: Recovery Essentials Part 2; Peer Support; Stigma and Me and Stigma and Us. All learners receive CPD accredited certificates when a course has been completed.
CPD for Individuals
Completing CPD accredited online courses shows that learners are proactive and have commitment to self-directed learning. Self-directed learning can develop confidence and enhance skills and knowledge. Completing CPD courses provides learners with evidence of achievements and progression. A CPD certificate of completion is issued to individuals when each SRC online course is completed.
CPD for Organisations
CPD can be helpful to evidence the developing knowledge and skills within an organisation.
Organisations can promote Continuing Professional Development to ensure continuity in the workplace. CPD can help to identify potential knowledge and skills gaps in organisations, and highlight areas for quality improvement. CPD encourages a healthy learning culture which can lead to a more fulfilled and valued workforce. A CPD certificate of completion is issued to individuals when each SRC online course is completed.
Accessible & Inclusive Learning
Scottish Recovery Consortium’s online CPD accredited learning is accessible and inclusive for everyone with an interest in recovery. This approach will enhance personal, social and community recovery, whilst enabling people with lived experience and professionals to collaborate more effectively.
