Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects, this resource is based on the principle that there is no one best way to learn or to teach. It is designed to be a resource for educators and practice learning facilitators by offering a straightforward guide to ways in which learners might learn. Learning facilitators and their students might find it useful in planning learning, teaching and assessment activities.
Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects, this multimedia learning object object is designed to help students to work through the ‘what', ‘why' and ‘how' questions. This resource will be useful to those working at SCQF levels 9 and 10.
Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects, this resource has been specifically developed for the following student practice learning facilitators working towards the Practice Learning Qualifications (Social Services) Stages 1-3:
* Service users and carers, especially at Stage 1

Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects, this learning object is intended for those studying at Level 7 and Level 9 of the Practice Learning Award but may be of interest to those studying at levels 9 and 10 too. The object is also designed to be used by facilitators of learning together with their learners.
This website includes Learning Objects designed primarily to support the learning of students or candidates undertaking the Practice Learning Qualification (PLQ) or the Practice Learning Qualification (Social Services) (PLQ(SS)), though they can also be used by anyone wishing to increase their understanding of learning in the workplace.
This training activity consists of 20 case scenarios and staff are asked to identify whether or not each scenario constitutes abuse of neglect. They are also asked to consider the needs of children at each developmental stage. These exercises can be done individually initially but require group discussion to explore issues effectively.
This short training scenario was originally used in the context of introductory child protection training. It gives brief information from which participants are asked to identify what they are concerned about and what they would do next. A school is concerned about the behaviour of a disabled child who receives monthly respite care.
This course is a mixture of didactic input and case scenario exercises. It also includes a PowerPoint presentation called 'A Multi Agency Understanding of Child Protection Related to Disability'. The course offers information on the current state of knowledge about the abuse of disabled children and the challenges of their adequate protection. There is then an opportunity for participants to make use of this knowledge using some brief case scenarios. Exercise can last approximately 2.5 hours and is appropriate for groups of 8-25.
The guide is based on practical experience. It provides tried and tested methods of working, for adults interested in encouraging young people to become actively involved in their local community and its regeneration. This guide is based on the experience and learning from Save the Children’s Community Partners Programme (2000 to 2005).
This website provides interactive online lessons to help improve students' English grammar skills. Students receive constructive feedback throughout the exercises, and get a detailed end-of-round summary report after several questions have been completed. The report gives teachers and students a quick assessment of key grammar concepts. It serves as a foundation for future improvement using the activities on this web site or other methods of instruction.
