Our training courses have been developed over the years to comply with (and in many cases exceed) the guidelines and Code of Practice laid down by the General Social Care Council, Skills for Care, Care Certificate and Care Quality Commission (CQC) guidelines, as well as providing underpinning knowledge for QCF studies.
Courses are thorough, practical, interactive and above all, fun. Each topic lasts between 2 and 4 hours. Many will utilise industry-standard videos and most are backed up with a revision quiz to finish. Small groups and a modular format make it easy to tailor training sessions to your exact requirements. Our trainers come to you with all necessary equipment – we can even supply a hoist.
All attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance and are asked to complete an evaluation form on the training session which will then be sent to you with the certificates.
Courses are ideally suited to a maximum of 15 attendees per session, particularly where practice on equipment is required (eg First Aid / Moving & Handling). However, we are happy to take groups of up to 20 for all non-practical courses.
All our courses can be used towards QCFs as accredited prior learning.
We continually update existing courses in line with professional requirements and new modules are being developed and added continually in response to industry requirements, legal changes and client demand.
Our Management Skills Development courses are also modular, enabling you to tailor your training according to your requirements. We feel this approach works well for small organisations where smaller groups and mixed skill-sets make a ‘blanket’ approach inapplicable. We also appreciate that losing key managers for a whole day or more can cause problems, so some of our modules can be tailored to 3 or 4 hours if necessary. This approach also avoids ‘information overload’: staff can consolidate their learning in one area before training is undertaken in another.
Modules include: Appraisals, Team Leading & Staff Supervision, Clinical Supervision, Care Standards, Effective Communication, Resolving Conflict.
