Course Delivery - Classroom

We will deliver this course at your site for up to 20 delegates. Every delivery is different, because every group of delegates is different. So, whilst we always deliver on the learning outcomes, we will adapt the delivery style to suit the audience and do our very best to meet the needs and requirements of each and every delegate. We understand that different authorities have different processes, forms and sometimes terminology and in the preparation for any course delivery we will take time to ask for the relevant forms and build this into our training. This makes absolutely sure that the delivery is pitched exactly for the target audience.

What results is a tailored programme that our delates will appreciate. The result will be a delivery time that varies. We don't stretch out 4 hours material into 8 when this is often not required. Equally, where there are questions or specifics that delegates want to discuss in more detail our trainers are happy to take as much time as you need. We anticipate that the training will take up to 7 hours, but once all of the areas have been covered,  your staff can get back to work!

This course will work very well alongside our CPIA course, which goes into much more detail on the disclosure requirements of a case file.

We are currently working on our online delivery version of this course and when it is available all classroom delegates will receive free access to the online course for 3 months.
