our mission

Our mission is to support our vulnerable children through the people who look after them. Our aim is to bring our knowledge and experiences into our courses so that you; the carer, have the tools needed to incorporate them in real life. Outside of consultancy our trainers bring a wealth of experience and expertise including backgrounds in Child Psychology and Trauma. All of our trainers are still caring for looked after children in one capacity or another.

This is why we believe so strongly in supporting others via training in these social care roles. We have already supported Residential home staff, Foster Carers and Mentors but we welcome any learner.

Through educating and supporting the carer we ultimately support the child.

We have a range of training methods for you to choose from to suit all budgets and our courses are CPD certified so you can make your decision with the assurance you are in good hands.

why use pre-recorded?

With our pre-recorded PowerPoint style course you can learn on the go, on the train, on the bus with instant access wherever, whenever you like, again and again. One way to keep the budget low, you can work in your own time, no pressure and of course- great value for money.

Please note this version of the course is independent learning with PowerPoint and emailed resources with feedback sheet.

why use virtual?

Our Virtual courses are a great option for a group of learners, no travel time, easy access and simply pick your date and time.

We are able to send over resources before the course so that you can have them to hand whilst training or reflect on them after the course is finished. Once you have completed your course we will send over CPD certified certificates that you can add to your portfolio.

why face to face?

Our face to face courses offer a different learning experience that you cannot get online. Our trainers are personable, proactive and passionate. Trainer led courses have better outcomes due to learners having direct interaction with trainer and fellow learners. Learners reported better concentration than on virtual courses. Once you have completed the course we will send over your CPD certified certificate to add to your portfolio.
