Healthcare Training Solutions

With the care sector more highly regulated and heavily scrutinised than ever before it’s essential for every care provider to consider quality professional health care training as a top priority for their nurses, carers and staff.

Our training can be adapted to suit all areas of the care sector. This includes Care Home Training, Domiciliary Care Training, Nursing Home Training, Learning Disability Services Training, Mental Health Services Training etc.

Training in itself however is not enough. Managers and owners need to ensure that the delivery of training is to the highest levels and to nationally recognised standards and accreditations. Healthcare Training Solutions provide just that.


Committed to raising standards in the health care industry nationwide, Healthcare Training Solutions promote excellence through learning and development to ensure you have a skilled, compliant, competent workforce. This will help ensure sustainability and profitability for your business together with wellbeing for clients.

We are proud to be part of Healthcare Management Solutions, the UK’s leading management and consultancy business, so you can be assured of unrivalled experience in care management, at all levels.


Our highly qualified team consists of experienced nurses and carers with experience in services for older people, mental health and learning disabilities, social care assessment and verification, who are all qualified trainers in their own rights (PTTLS, DTTLS, Award, Certificate & Diploma in Education and Training, Cert. Ed. Etc). They are skilled in imparting their first-hand knowledge to ensure staff undergoing training reach their full potential.
All courses are interactive and take account of all types of blended learning programmes. By agreement we can also provide bespoke training packages to dovetail with the policies and procedures of individual care providers.
We provide various types of courses across the UK that meet the regulatory bodies requirements. They cover the key areas of health care training:

  • Core Training Courses (Mandatory Training)

    Mapped to the QCF, CQC, Ofsted, CSSIW and SCQF Frameworks and regulatory requirements. These include food safety training, fire safety training, first aid training, infection control training, manual handling training, MCA / Dols Training, Safeguarding (SOVA) training.

  • Accredited Courses

    These are delivered through the following nationally recognised awarding programmes:

    • Highfield Awarding Body (HABC)

    These include First Aid Training, Manual Handling Training, Health and Safety Training, Medication Training etc.

  • Train the Trainer

    Targeted to those who want to provide ‘inhouse’ training for their teams.
    Our training course modules focus upon quality, relevance and delegate interaction. We believe in making them enjoyable yet constructive.

    These can include train the trainer in manual handling (moving and handling), train the trainer in medication awareness etc.

Susan, Charlton Court Home Manager

“Just wanted to let you know how impressed we are with the training we have received from Jan last week.  I and a group of staff took part in the Moving and Handling training which was very informative and enjoyable. Staff felt they had learnt more on the day than they had in any previous M&H training they had received in the past. Often it’s difficult to get staff to go on training courses but because of Jan’s style and presentation is encouraging staff to go onto other courses and helping to develop their skills and knowledge.”

Kay Paul, Regional Manager

“I was just about to email you Tony to let you know that I have such positive feedback from ALL my homes, they love you. They say the training is fun, they learn a lot and get such a buzz from it.

Thank you Tony, the staff are so motivated and asking for training, result!!!”

“First things first, what brill training sessions the staff had at Guardian Care this week. The feedback I had was excellent, it took me 20min to walk from one end of Mayfield to the other, with staff stopping me and talking to me what they would like to introduce on their units and some of their ideas. I think it would be a good idea to monitor this and I will feed
you the results of any changes. This Wednesday and Thursday Elaine had the same shift and spoke to me of her own feedback  of the staff, so  I too
have spoken to their clinical leads and unit managers and have conveyed over what a good bunch they were at the sessions. So thank you for your feedback Elaine, very much appreciated”
