Safer Moving & Positioning

We are running a Safer Moving and Positioning open course at St. Michael & All Angels Church Hall on Wednesday 11th December 2019 between 1pm and 4pm.

Why should I attend this course?

Staff working in health and social care must be appropriately trained in safe moving and positioning to deliver a safe service. Employers have a responsibility to ensure that staff are appropriately trained, and an assessment of competence should follow in the workplace. If you are an individual (not yet employed) attending this course, the course will immensely help with your job prospects.

3SpiritUK is a Centre of Excellence so you can be assured that the quality of training exceeds industry standards.
