 Short Courses



We deliver short half and one day courses, across the north east region, on various current topics which are designed to equip staff with the skills and knowledge to enhance their roles and contribute to the overall effectiveness of the organisation.

All our courses can be designed specifically for organisations and delivered in your own premises, which is a valuable and cost effective way of training staff and residents. We can design a bespoke course for groups of 6 or more learners - click here and complete the form to request more information about how we can help you with your training needs.
