Training FAQs

We can deliver this training at your premises, as long as it’s within the UK. Also, we have our own venues in UK if you need access to a training room (additional charges will apply). We can also deliver this training virtually using Zoom. However, sessions delivered via Zoom will be theory only and will not include any practical.

This training will last 2-3 hours. We give a range of time to account for variable factors such as; underlying knowledge and competence of delegates, class interaction and engagement and reduced delegate numbers. If a course finishes earlier than the allotted time, it will be due to one of these reasons. However, our trainer will ensure that all learning outcomes have been met.
In short, no. No classroom-based training course can give you full competency – be very wary of anyone claiming they can. Our classroom-based assessments are designed to bridge the gap between classroom learning and workplace competency. We will be sure to provide you with the relevant workbooks and competency proformas to be observed and signed off within the workplace according to your local policy.

Person Centred Care Training

The value of viewing people as unique persons will be made clearer to participants in the person-centered care training session. Participants in this session will learn how to make sure their work is person-centered. It is strongly advised that attendees take this course in addition to our Care Training.

Person-Centred Care means giving special attention to each person’s needs and feelings when they get healthcare.

It entails recognizing each person for who they are as an individual and honoring their choices and privacy. This method emphasizes open communication, active listening, and teamwork to ensure that each individual receives the exact care they need. The goal is to treat the person as a whole, not just their medical condition, and to help them feel important and understood.
