SCIE - Dementia Awareness

What is this?

Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE) is a Government-funded organisation and charity.  The aim of SCIE is to improve learning and development in the social care sector through training and resources.  There is a lot of useful information on the main website (, including videos and free online training. There also some paid for training courses. 

We like their Dementia Awareness course. The course content is a mixutre of text to read, video clips and scenarios. This course covers what is meant by dementia, signs and symptoms of dementia, how to live well with dementia and talking to people who are living with dementia.

The course takes about 30 minutes to complete. 


The course is provided at a cost of £12.00 + VAT
