A great option for childminders.

At SCMA we understand how important learning is to our members; however, it can be tough to always find the time.  That’s why our e-Learning courses are a great option for childminders. 

Our e-Learning courses give you the freedom to Learn with SCMA at a time that suits you, your family and your business.  You can work through the e-Learning course content at your own pace, stop for a break, save your work – and then come back to it later, whenever suits you best. 

With Learn with SCMA, childminders can choose to learn via interactive courses or our e-Learning courses. Both platforms cover the exact same content contained within each course, therefore the method of learning is entirely your decision - what will best suit your needs, location and circumstances?

The childminder’s preference always comes first - whether you prefer an interactive form of learning or a more flexible online approach - the choice of how you Learn with SCMA is yours.

I’ve completed three SCMA e-Learning courses and I found the system very easy to use and had no problem accessing websites and completing the courses. I enjoyed the fact that I could do them in my own time and when was suitable and convenient to myself. All information was set out well and I tried to complete the questions without referring back to the information - but it is good that you are able to do that when necessary.
