Human Touch Training are able to deliver a large number of Care Sector Courses enabling students to gain their Care Certificate as quickly as possible. Courses may be required under statutory legislation such as First Aid and Health and Safety Awareness or may form part of a team’s Continuing Personal Development training such as dementia awareness or Mental Capacity Act.

The courses are relevant for private carers, Nursing Staff and Carers working in both a Private and a Residential Care Setting.

Every course is fully accredited by a National Organisation and students will receive a certificate of attendance or achievement at the end of the course. Healthcare regulating and inspecting bodies are increasingly wanting to see that healthcare training being delivered is by competent trainers who are fully accredited to deliver subject specific courses mapped to healthcare standards and outcomes set by regulating bodies such as CQC, HSE, etc

The courses are closely aligned with those required by staff looking to gain their care certificate

The ‘people movers’ course is particularly popular. This course is for staff in residential care / nursing homes and those providing care in the community who may be called upon to undertake training and assessment of manual handling tasks. The course will equip participants with a thorough knowledge of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 which came into force on 1st January 1993, and the prescribed method by which employees can minimise the risk of injury while undertaking manual handling operations in the course of their normal duties.
