Training Course Fees
Our training courses cost £65 a day and £35 for half a day. These charges will be made to the provider booking the training and it will be the responsibility of the provider to pay these charges not the individual employee.
Some courses take place over a number of days. In these cases the charge will be £65 for every day of the course for example, £195 for a three day course. Employees will not be allowed to continue with a multiple day course if they have not attended any of the previous days of the course and in such circumstances no refunds will be given.
You may be able to reclaim training course fees from Skills for Care.
We are here to help you to provide the best possible care to customers and their carer's and we look forward to working closely with you.
