What is Turas Learn?

The aim of Turas Learn is to create a single system that can host and track the range of learning materials that are produced/purchased by NES and its partners. For NES and its partners this will mean a single point of access for hosting and tracking learning that makes it simpler for content owners to create learning and make it available. For the learner, this should provide a single place to easily find health and social care learning they need to do, helping them discover useful learning they weren’t already aware of and keep track of what they have completed.
