Personal Assistant training doncaster sheffield rotherham

We have recently worked together with Doncaster Council, Active Independence and Rotherham Council to develop a number of bespoke courses for Personal Assistants.

The courses are tailored to the needs of those supporting individual clients in the community and they aim to give advice and guidance in a work environment where compliance systems are not officially in place. This means that policies and procedures can be introduced and the training encourages PA's to determine processes with their employer that safeguards them both. It also ensures good record keeping for audit purposes.

We are currently delivering the following:
