Rapid Induction Training 

We are proud to be a nationally recognised Centre of Excellence for Health and Social Care Training. 

Our courses are fully endorsed by Skills for Care.

 

Are you a health and social care provider whose staff training has been impacted by Covid 19?

As a Skills for Care endorsed provider, Training in Care has been awarded funding to support the growing needs of the care sector during and following the global pandemic. There are only 12 training providers in the UK who are eligible to deliver this training and we are proud to be one of them. 

All training will be conducted via our bespoke online learning platform which has been developed by experts in the health and social care field. 

We will work with you to arrange a suitable time. Due to it being online this can be more flexible and can start as soon as possible.

All participants will receive a certificate on completion of training.
