About our training

From Key Workers to Managers and Health Care Assistants, your staff play an important role in caring for those with a learning disability, whether they have mild, moderate, severe or multiple LD’s. In order to ensure that both your staff and those under your care feel comfortable and confident in your setting, we have singled out a selection of training courses that will be of great benefit to your colleagues and – as a result – everyone who walks through your door, including relatives of those who you are entrusted to look after.

From a general Introduction to Learning Disability or Managing Challenging Behaviour session for new staff, to Intensive Interaction and Autistic Spectrum Disorder Training for established careers, we are able to offer you training sessions with qualified and experienced tutors who will empower you and your colleagues and increase awareness of the challenges that exist within such a demanding setting. Whatever the course or requirement, we welcome the chance to discuss your training needs and to work with you to ensure that your staff benefit from the best training available.
