Adult care training and research
Our Adult Care Learning and Development section provide a variety of training courses and development opportunities. Courses are available to people working in social care, supporting adults living in Derbyshire.
Is there a cost?
Most courses are available free of charge. However there are occasions when we may have to charge a small fee such as when an examination or accreditation fee is payable eg. food hygiene and first aid courses.
Standard of training
All our training is in line with national policies and guidance. In addition we are able to provide the opportunity for individuals to gain vocational qualifications through our partnership with City and Guilds.
We provide support to newly qualified social workers through our assessed supported year in employment (ASYE) programme and support continuous professional development for all staff.
Which course is right for you?
Our training brochure (attached at bottom of page) will give you information about course content so you can decide which course is right for you or your staff.
Once you know which course is needed, our training course search
will tell you when and where that course is next available.
How to apply
Applications for courses can be made by using the application forms on our apply
