The course is a mix of theory and practical learning ensuring staff are up to date with best practices and uses of various equipment.

“All of our training courses are framed around person centred care principles, to promote confidence and competence in the staff team to best support those they work with. Our aim is to not only pass on subject knowledge but positively promote application of the training on a day to day basis by making our training enjoyable and engaging, relevant, memorable and applicable.” Able Training Awards Statement
