Coronavirus training for members

Given the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus, we are providing generic guidance for members. Digital skills are important, so we’ve sourced two courses to help members.

As the coronavirus situation continues to develop in the UK, we need to be thinking about how best to support members, and ensure you have the tools you need to keep yourself safe and healthy.

Digital skills are crucial for finding accurate and up to date health information, as well as for identifying dangerous misinformation regarding the virus. And alongside this, there is an indication that some GP surgeries may begin requesting appointments via video call to avoid the virus spreading. Video calling may also be useful to help prevent social isolation.

With this in mind, Community has sourced a specialist module with our partner Good Things Foundation through their online training platform Learn My Way.

The online Health information and video calling module will take around 1hr and can be completed in staggered sessions.
