Training2Care have suspended face to face training until they can ensure the safety of delegates, residents, care staff and the wider community. 

As clients have expressed a preference for ace-to-face over e-learning they have now set up 4 professional webinar studios to deliver courses as close to face-to-face as possible.  They are delivering their courses live from these studios which can be viewed from any mobile phone, iPad or computer, anywhere in the country.  Even if you are in self-isolation, you can be keeping your skills up and ensure that your care staff, nurses and new staff have the knowledge they need to deliver to the highest standards.

Training and Assessment in Healthcare

Training and Assessment in Healthcare are trying to look both creatively and realistically at how best to support health and social care services at this time.

They are still delivering urgent face-to-face training if required - with strict infection control measures to be in place (both ways) and small groups in separate training areas for risk reduction.

When face-to-face training is no longer viable they will deliver webinar-based training via Skype, Zoom (or similar).

They are currently still available to provide immediate and necessary upskilling for the workforce and existing clinicians. There is a focus on the subjects below to ensure a continuity in care, assess and manage risks and ensure safety for everyone over the coming weeks and months, but the list is not exhaustive and they would be pleased to hear any other training requests. They are offering shortened, updated versions of these courses (and others), tailoring options on a needs basis at reasonable costs.

  • Moving and Handling (including equipment)
  • Basic Life Support & first aid
  • Infection Control
  • Medication administration (both standard and advanced)
  • Safeguarding
  • Other Clinical Skills as required

PPE training: via offer a range of delivery methods including webinars and phone calls. Contact TIHC to confirm details.
