Health and social care short courses

We are supporting companies across England to provide their employees with opportunities for enhancing their skills, knowledge and careers.

Our range of health and social care short courses are delivered according to individual business needs and are created in partnership with the employer.

All short courses meet the National Minimum Standards for care and can either be accredited or ‘in-house’ certified.

Bespoke training for your business needs

When you register for a short course with us, we will conduct an analysis of your business’s training needs and work with you to decide what would most benefit you.

Experts in providing training for the health and social care sector, we can also help you to meet the training needs following, or in the run up to, a CQC inspection.

Whatever your requirements, all of our short courses are bespoke to you. We can embed your own ways of working and policies into the course content, providing you with a truly bespoke training package.

What’s more, if you cant find the right course, we can create one specifically for you. Register for a short course today to begin.
