How to access

The DLS IT Skills Pathway is a free of charge resource for public sector health and care organisations in England and can be accessed by users at home or work. It contains diagnostic tools to assess your current skill level and then subsequently suggests a learning path.

The learning is delivered through the DLS network of organisations. You can use the map on the Digital Learning Solutions website to locate your local centre.

As a learner you register for an account at your local centre and get access to your own Learning Portal. From your Learning Portal you can easily browse and search the content that is made available by your organisation. Once you’ve found the course you’re interested in, you can  enrol and you’ll have access to it instantly. You are supported by the local team at your organisation.
