This is a course for moving and handling trainers who directly train staff in safe moving and handling of people techniques and how to complete moving and handling of people risk assessments.
The course is an in-depth 4 day course, spread over 2-5 weeks. Please note: not all days will necessarily be the same day of the week.

Please note that if delegates are not wearing appropriate footwear, they may be turned away from the course by the trainer, and a charge will be made for the wasted place.Essential Information
This half-day course is suitable for anyone interested in the role of the Personal Assistant in Health and Social Care.
The role of the PA is very different from other support roles in that PAs are working one-to-one with clients and not via a ‘care’ agency. As an employed PA, the client or their carer will be your manager/supervisor. If you are considering becoming a self-employed PA you will need to understand your responsibilities to your clients.
PAs are not registered with the Care Quality Commission and therefore, training or development will depend on either your employer organising
training and funding for qualifications or you will need to take responsibility for your own professional development.
