What is My Learning Source?

If you are new to it, My Learning Source is the main e-learning platform used by Southwark Council. It’s mostly for their employees, but it plays a crucial role in the multi-agency safeguarding partnership, as it is here that you can take part in free e-learning, and book yourself onto safeguarding courses.

Setting up an account 

It’s completely free to register an account, but there are two important steps:

1) Register your organisation with My Learning Source
2) Create a new user account, linked to that approved organisation

The first step can take some time, as it needs to be done manually, and you will not be able to access the platform and sign up for any training without it.

They say it can take up to 72 hours at the moment, so if you are interested in taking part in training we recomennd you register your organisation as soon as possible.

If you encounter any problems with this please let us know at info@communitysouthwark.org.
