You First Training Calendar
A number of You First staff got involved in First Aid training at the You First offices in Langport during October. As you can see, active participation was the name of the game and people reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the session and gained a great deal from it.
The session was provided by Copper Beach Training with whom You First has a partnership relationship.
You First has a rolling Training Calendar that goes over and above that expected of a Provider and this ensures that all staff are confident and competent most especially as the majority of support provided takes place on a one-to-one basis.
You First's extensive Training Calendar reflects our commitment to personal and professional staff development across the board. The calendar incorporates sessions led by the senior team as well as specialist training delivered by health colleagues and other professionals.
Such is the quality of You First in-house training we are receiving requests to provide various modules for other organisations.
If you would like more information on the training You First provides for our staff please email Nathalie John.
