Training Courses

We are unique in the way we support and deliver our training. The courses we provide are delivered at different levels to meet your needs. They are all evidenced based and delivered by specialist clinicians. They have a balance of theory and clinical practice, and a number have the support of a mentor, allocated to the applicant.

New Skills Training:
These courses have been designed to support clinicians, new to this skill. They are all competency based, vary in length and applicants require an in-house mentor to support them.

Update courses:
It is essential that as clinicians, we are regularly kept up to date, in order to meet the code of professional standards and  re-validation requirements.
A number of short courses have been developed to assist you with this.

Supporting Health Care Assistants/Assistant Practitioners:
With the changing environment of General Practice and an increased number of HCAs requiring support in their development, our courses have been developed and are available for this group of healthcare workers.
These courses are all Competency based and link into the requirements of the Competency Frame Work.

Professional Development Membership Scheme:

To support clinicians in a cost effective way, we have developed a unique membership scheme. With an annual subscription of £200 you are entitled to 5 half-day training courses over the period April 2016 to March 2017, or the equivalent e.g. 2 half-days can be taken together to make a full days training.
