Skills for Care has funded DaCE Independent Living Services to provide a range of training courses for Direct Payments employers and their personal assistants (PAs).
The courses include Moving and Handling, Safeguarding, Infection Control, First Aid, Medication and Being a Good Employer.
All of the courses take place between June 2016 and March 2017, and will be organised in different parts of the County so they are accessible no matter where you live or work.
We are able to pay travel expenses and pay an allowance for support staff to attend where needed.
This is a fantastic opportunity to make sure PAs are trained, or to get their training refreshed and up-to-date.
