Bespoke Courses


Some courses are more effective when delivered to the whole team. The Learning and Development Vocational Assessment team offer a range of bespoke courses that can be delivered within the workplace to teams.

We have also delivered specific courses for example, Learning Disability Syndromes (within a specific service), Medication and its use in learning disability practice.

The first step is to contact The Learning and Development Vocational Assessment Team, one of the team will then discuss the specific learning outcomes required so that the content of the course can be amended to ensure relevance to that team.

The team are also able to offer directly delivered courses to complement the eLearning modules that are available.
