About Chatsworth Training

At Chatsworth Training we pride ourselves on delivering courses that help people to be the best they can be – all backed by the highest-quality learning materials.

We understand how important a skilled and motivated workforce is to providing client-care of the highest standard.

In these days of box ticking and paperwork it’s easy to overlook the importance of the personal touch. We believe that learning is best achieved in a relaxed, fun environment where each student’s contribution is valued as much as the next.

“I just wanted to say that the courses were amazing! I feel that I have learnt so much and I feel much more confident about working in Live-In care. Susie is a fantastic trainer and she has taught me so much. She’s light-hearted, but uses her own experiences and wealth of knowledge as well.”

“We had Susie here yesterday giving us training on Epipen and Diabetes.  Just wanted to let you know how awesome she was.  We were really short staffed and could barely afford to lose anybody on the floor but she adapted her training delivery and still managed to train people.  I take my hat off to her!!!”
