Care staff we have trained often comment that the experience of our trainers make our courses useful to their everyday job roles and that they will go on to apply what they have learnt in their day to day work.

Guidance on 

Training during the Covid-19 PandemicCOVID 19 Training Solutions

In light of the recent Covid-19 virus pandemic, Personal Care Consultants have had a number of training commissioners ask if there are alternative ways of delivering such training, avoiding or, at the very least, limiting face-to-face contact and therefore reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Furthermore we understand that in some areas of the healthcare, social care and special needs education sectors, there is now an immediate need for you to get other staff and volunteers trained up quickly to help manage the growing need for replacement staff and additional staff as the virus progresses.

In particular, The delivery of mandatory manual handling training in a care or special educational needs setting is generally considered a ‘practical skills’ course. At least two-thirds of the course content are practical skills being demonstrated, then practised and finally assessed and documented by our trainers.

In order to meet your training requirements in these strange times, we suggest the following:

  • Practical training is delivered a smaller number of delegates.  Depending of the venue, we would suggest a maximum of 5 candidates and 1 trainer, reducing the number of candidates to as low as is reasonably practicable in accordance with current social distancing regulations.  Full PPE to be worn at all times.
  • Theory training is delivered remotely via Zoom/Skype/Video conferencing – this can be to a larger number of candidates
  • Personal Care Consultants have a resource library that can be accessed via our website
  • We offer telephone/video support for any candidates who have specific queries around the moving and handling of an individual/use of equipment
