e-Learning at IOW NHS
There are currently two e-Learning systems here at the IOW NHS Trust. One of these systems is called Training Tracker and the other is called ESR (Electronic Staff Record).

Both systems offer a wide choice of training modules, including the mandatory training modules that you are obligated to undertake as part of your role when you join the Organisation. The mandatory modules may have to be taken again at 12/24/36 monthly intervals, depending on the subject.

This system is the Department of Health’s e-Learning platform and is used nationally across the U.K. in many NHS Trusts. It has the greater catalogue of e-Learning opportunities and the list of courses grows month by month. Here you will find the majority of the mandatory modules that apply to your role.

A username and password is required for access to ESR and details of how these log-in credentials can be obtained please see the details below.
