Upcoming Courses › Subject specific courses

HCPA offers a wide variety of subject specific courses suitable for different types of Care Professionals.
We look for subject matter experts to bring training in a way that is engaging and practical. The advantage of sending staff on open subject specific courses is that they not only learn from the education received but they also learn from their peers.
The sharing of knowledge in this sector is vital and feedback from learners often highlights how much more they have learned by being off-site and sharing a learning space with other organisations.
