An Awareness of Type 1 Diabetes E-Learning Course

Virtual College has worked with the JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity, and the Children and Young People's Diabetes Network to develop this free online course which is available for anyone to access.


The course is aimed at all professionals who work in schools and other settings where they may come into contact with children and young people who have type 1 diabetes.


There are two levels of this course:


Basic – gives an awareness of what type 1 diabetes is and how to support children and young people with the condition.


Advanced - this includes the basic course and gives further information about checking glucose levels and how to administer insulin.


If you have previously registered for the basic level and now want to access the advanced level you can do this by logging in and clicking on the requested learning tab. We recommend that you do not re-register as you will then have to complete the basic level course again in order to obtain your certificate.
