Press Release

Released 26th March 2019

My Learning Cloud Ltd, the leading online learning solution for the health and social care industry, and UKHCA, the national professional association for homecare providers have announced a new strategic partnership.
 
Through this strategic partnership, which is live from the beginning of April 2019, My Learning Cloud will provide a membership offer and associated benefits for UKHCA's two-thousand members, across the United Kingdom. Those benefits include more than 70 CPD certified courses, and a learning environment that understands the health and social care sector and will manage all learning development interventions for any organisation. Overall, this partnership is a really exciting opportunity for both organisations to really ensure that people are getting great learning and development.

We are very excited that this partnership offers UKHCA members preferential access to My Learning Cloud's e-learning solutions, as part of a blended learning system for their care teams. 
 
"This partnership will also give us the opportunity to work with our members and My Learning Cloud to identify and produce additional new modules that can further enhance members' training provision".

Steven Embleton, Chief Cloud at My Learning Cloud, said that:

"We're really excited to partner with UKHCA. It's clear to us that UKHCA has an amazing membership base with some great benefits and we're really pleased to become the online learning provider of choice for their members, in order to really put the power of learning and development back into the hands of each of those organisations and provide solutions that will really empower their learners to take responsibility for their development."
