Tech for Good

Tech for good is defined as the intentional design and development of digital technologies to address social challenges. At Virtual College we understand how technology can be used to make a real positive impact on society and we have already taken steps to make a real difference not only in the UK but across the globe.

Free FGM e-learning course developed with the Home Office

The Home Office have recently reviewed the national guidelines on responding to female genital mutilation (FGM). As a result, they found that there was a lack of accessible training on FGM and, consequently, frontline safeguarding professionals had significantly different levels of knowledge surrounding the practice.

To address this problem, Virtual College worked with the Home Office to develop a bespoke e-learning course that, whilst handling the subject in a sensitive way, gave the learners clear information about identifying and responding to FGM practices. Over 211,000 people have now taken the online training.

Virtual College and the Epilepsy Nurses Association

The Epilepsy Nurses Association (ESNA) launched best practice training guidelines for carers administering buccal midazolam for epilepsy patients in the community. To support the implementation of these guidelines, Virtual College have worked with ESNA to create an online assessment tool to ensure a standardised knowledge check can be undertaken effectively, for professionals who are caring for epilepsy patients in healthcare and private care settings.
