Open Futures Learning Opportunity
The Disability Trust is committed to containing the spread of COVID-19 to ensure our staff and more importantly our clients are safe. With restrictions easing many of us are slowly returning to the workplace however, COVID-19 is still very much a part of our world.
As a result of COVID-19 there has been a greater focus on the importance of upskilling and personal development. Thankfully, the prevalence of online learning means there’s no shortage of courses, classes and workshops that can be taken from the comfort of your own home. With this in mind we have purchased a Learning Management System called Open Futures Learning for all staff to access various modules specific to disability sector. This is an exciting learning platform using a multimedia approach 100% dedicated to the learning disability workforce.
To gain access to all the modules you are required to firstly register by clicking on the link below and entering your work email address and details. This will then need to be approved by the Learning and Development team. A confirmation email will be sent to you once this occurs. You can then enrol in a range of courses on offer (see attached). A confirmation email is sent to yourself and the training department on completion of a module along with a copy of your certificate.

Some details about the various aspects of this system:
Staff Learning Modules: Learning Modules are designed to benefit anyone who touches the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
Mini Learning Modules: Taking 30 minutes or less to complete, Mini Learning Modules capture everything you expect and deliver it in a bite size format.
Audio Learning Modules: Like an interactive podcast, Audio Learning Modules make it possible to learn while you drive, workout, do your dishes, or any time you are on the go.
Side by Side: The Side by Side modules have been created so that the people who receive support and the people who provide support can learn together.
The Open Futures Learning platform has an extensive range of professional development opportunities available. Additional modules completed during this time will be added to your TDT Training History however, as these modules are undertaken on a voluntary basis, please understand that you will not be paid for completing these.
