We've made some changes!
Covid 19 has given us the opportunity to reflect on the way in which we present our training and, as a result, we are launching our FANTASTIC new training programme tailored to the times we live in and ready to take us into the post-Covid era.
From January 2021 you'll be able to access our multi award-winning training here in Rotherham, at home, in your workplace or a venue of your choice.
We'll be offering a combination of face-to-face learning, Microsoft Teams, webinars and practical mentoring sessions, including time to talk on a one-to-one basis and as a group, plus ongoing support.
Further details will be published as soon as they are finalised.
We shall restart our Training programme in the Autumn, with the Ear Irrigation & Instrumentation Course for Support Workers and their mentors on October 29th & 30th 2020.
This first course will follow the usual small group format, combining taught and practical sessions, but with PPE, social distancing, the latest ear-care health and safety training and on-going support.
If you have already booked on a course or if you would like to book a place on any of our forthcoming courses please contact us in the ususal ways:
Phone: 01709 423140
We have already published some new course dates - please have a look at the Calendar on this page and on the Home page.
We look forward to seeing you here in Rotherham, safe and well, in the very near future.
Mentorship will form an integral - and essential - part of our training in the future. It is embedded in the new Microsuction Course so that participants are able to complete their competencies under supervision and therefore be confident in their ability to provide safe and effective ear care.
It has always been part of our irrigation and instrumentation courses both for nurses and support workers so that professionals can work safely and effectively in a timely way.
We have been providing bespoke mentorship for some time now, particularly to those people who have studied with us and find it difficult to access a mentor in their place of work. Mentorship is available for Nurses, Audiologists, Associate Audiologists and Associate Practitioners.
A highly-trained nurse can come to you for either a 4 hour or an 8 hour session. You will be observed in a clinic of your own patients/clients putting into practice the knowledge you have gained and performing the skills you have practised whilst studying with us.
Please contact us to discuss details and book a date.
Some recent comments about our training from students:
The best, most informative, training I have ever attended. (Been in Health & Social Care for nearly 20 years - so attended enough to know!)
This has been one of the most interesting and informative courses (Diploma Course) I have attended. All the information is essential to my role and will be of great benefit in progressing my career
Excellent training course. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Reasonably priced, too. Location great. There should be more than one!
Fantastic! (the trainers) make the Course fun, interactive and interesting. Probably one of the best courses I have attended in 22 years of healthcare and lots of different courses. Thank you ladies.
Didn't feel like I was in a normal learning environment. The delivery of the course was excellent.
Amazingly taught - very easy to understand. Seemed to take things in better than previous courses - lovely atmosphere. Nice to have someone actually teach rather than relying on Powerpoint for everything!
