ARC exists to improve the quality of life for people who have a learning disability, or other support needs, by assisting anyone who is involved in planning or delivery of support services for people who have a learning disability.
The annual Training Programme is developed in consultation with our members and the wider social care sector in recognition that our training does benefit non-members providing services to other clients groups eg those working the field of dementia, mental ill-health or older people. Training is available for both members and non-members, however places are limited, so completing and returning a booking form is essential.
In response to the pandemic we re-configured our training – delivering it live on ZOOM. The social care sector has told us this worked and they would like it to continue. Our training programme for 2023-24 has planned the majority of courses to continue via ZOOM, with the exception of a few courses that require Face to Face. The programme will be updated regularly and is available to download here*.
ARC NI has a Training Directory listing over 70 of the courses we can provide that includes costs, refresher timescales etc. Any of these can be delivered in-house at an organisation’s request, offering wider staff participation at a cost efficient rate.
