Workforce development

4. Learning Pool

Learning Pool is the home of the council's e-learning courses. It's available to both the council’s workforce and the workforce of its partners. On our e-learning platform there are courses available on Safeguarding, Social Care, Autism, the Care Act and more.

Partners can also use Learning Pool to book on several of our classroom training courses too.

You can access the website by visiting Learning Pool.

Access to our e-learning material is available free of charge to care providers who are contracted by Stockport Council to provide care on its behalf, whether in the voluntary, private or independent sectors. Please make sure that you clearly indicate the organisation you work for when signing up so that your account can be authorised as quickly as possible.

For other users a charge may apply for access to the system – if this is the case you'll be contacted upon requesting an account.
