Education

Further yourself and help others

Regardless of the role we each play in the Health and Care sector, up to date skills and knowledge are essential in delivering the best possible care for patients but also for developing ourselves and to allow us to progress in our profession. Our training is mapped to the latest standards in health and social care and delivered by Clinical Nurse Specialists and Advanced Nurse Specialists, who manage complex medical and social conditions on a daily basis.

Staff and volunteers choose to attend our training programmes and workshops because we truly do care about the learners who enrol with us. This is evidenced from being awarded a City and Guilds sponsored Princess Royal Training Award in 2017 who commended us as being ‘an exemplar of learning and best practice’. We want you to leave one of our sessions confident and empowered to deliver your new skills.

Funding for Education

Education is funded by the charity, Macmillan Caring Locally and we have an on-going funding need for our training. If you are interested in supporting any of these courses, our fundraising team would be very grateful to hear from you.
