Since 2004 we have designed and delivered training and learning programmes to support workers at all levels in the sector from managers to support workers.
Bespoke training options
We specialise in and are widely known for working with providers of services as opposed to simply selling training. We pay particular attention to identified needs and requirements and whilst some of our courses and programmes can be bought “off the shelf” most of our training is designed to be adapted to meet specific organisational requirements.
This is now more than ever the way most employers of social care workers seem to work. CPD has a higher profile and both employers and workers themselves take responsibility for their development more seriously.
For example, handling medication, person centred approaches, risk assessment and risk management would all be developed from an existing common framework to include particular organisational ways of working and service user needs.
We can deliver courses in various flexible ways – for example one or two day short courses, or programmes of combined subjects. We are also looking into developing e-learning programmes in the near future in order to make training more accessible and cost effective.
The following is an idea of some of the most popular or frequently purchased course titles we offer – this is not exhaustive and we encourage enquirers to contact us to discuss requirements.
