Grey Matter Learning
Grey Matter Learning
Grey Matter Learning is a social care training company providing a blend of online training and virtual sessions. Our mission is to Improve Lives Through Learning. We know a one-size-fits-all training approach wastes time, money and demotivates people. We all learn differently, yet often we are all ‘taught’ in the same way. Imagine if it could be different? Real person-centred learning that takes account of what we know, understand and do.

Established in 2006, we have delivered our vision of valuing individuals’ prior knowledge and experience, enabling care providers to take staff through personalised learning journeys and competence recording for CQC Regulation 18.

Our trademark “Know, Understand, Do” methodology is behind our Competence Recording System: Click, leading the way in recording evidence-based learning and Care Certificate portability.

Grey Matter Learning is a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence and Click is specifically designed for the Social Care sector to meet the Skills for Care guidance around the mandatory training courses and the Care Certificate.

Grey Matter Learning’s customers regularly share how they have improved their CQC rating and saved time and money.

The automated training matrix and built-in exports that speed up the ASC-WDS process  all support social care managers to save time - the most precious resource.  Click also supports managers to easily track refreshers and due dates with easy to configure eMail notifications, so no one ever goes “out of date”.

Grey Matter Learning is on the app store and the google play store, so download the app today and check the FREE courses, including supervision skills for managers, our free CQC course, the stress & resilience training and the free duty of candour course too!

Digital care planning lets you spend your time where it makes a difference

The reality at many UK care homes is that less time is spent on care, an increased workload and heaps of paperwork that steals the time available for real care work. Innovative thinking is needed if we are to ensure a better life for both employees and residents.

More time for care

The solution consists of tablets with customised apps that are installed for each resident. The tablets provide access to all the information needed, right where it is needed. The result is enhanced care, fewer mistakes and greater job satisfaction.

Tailored to your needs

Sekoia provides the care home professionals with an overview of their daily tasks and enables an improved day-to-day management. Recording health data, sharing information and reporting observations, all happens with lightning speed at the touch of a button. More than 30 apps are put together according to care home requirements, to ease the workflow and ensure care that is based on individual needs.

User-friendliness above all

Sekoia has been developed and designed together with care homes to ensure that everyone can use it – without a manual and with no pre-requisite of technical know-how. Implementation crew helps carers to get up and running and are always on hand to provide service and support. Sekoia users are typically up and running within short time handling everything themselves; smoothly and efficiently.

[Facts & Figures/ Statistics]

33% less time spent on administration

Sekoia customers are making huge reductions to the time their staff spends on administrative tasks. For example, one care home has reduced its paperwork by 33% and invested this time in enhanced care instead.

 50% fewer mistakes

Most care homes reduce the number of incidents – by preventing loss of information at handover to colleagues and temporary staff, for example. In many places, the reduction is more than 50%. Incidents are reported and logged in real time, date stamped and recorded.

1,200,000 care tasks a month

In the UK, Denmark and Sweden, Sekoia has been fully rolled out at more than 80 care homes, supporting more than 1,000,000 care tasks a month.
