Bespoke and tailored training
Rather than attend one of the open courses advertised in our prospectus, you may find it more beneficial for training to be provided to your whole team so that you can work through your specific needs and challenges. We can provide, adapt and tailor any of our courses so that they can be provided in-house in order to best meet your organisational and team needs.
We can also create new learning and development programmes on other topics relating to the support of adults with learning disabilities and additional mental health needs and on topics relating to the management of teams involved in their care and support.
When tailoring or designing new courses to deliver in-house to your and your team we will work closely with you to best understand your specific needs and most effective mode of learning - whether that be training courses, workshops, seminars or the development of educational and learning materials.
All our courses can be delivered online or in person, whether that be in your organisation or in one of our Estia Centre training venues.
For more information or to discuss your learning and development needs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on 020 3228 9742.
We offer advice and consultation to several service providers both nationally and abroad. The Estia Centre provides consultancy to services working with people with learning disabilities and mental health and/or challenging needs in accordance with:
White Paper Valuing People: A New Strategy for Learning Disability for the 21st Century (Department of Heath, 2001)
Green Light Toolkit (Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities, 2004)
The clinical services linked with the Estia Centre, and the expertise of its members in developing and running services for people with a learning disability and mental health and/or challenging needs, allows us opportunities to share experience and knowledge with other services. It also allows us to deliver specially tailored packages to groups, services and organisations. Consultancy is provided on a local, national and international basis.
