With thanks to funding from Skills for Care, we are able to offer this training free to PAs and Individual Employers.

The training will be held via on-line zoom sessions and workbooks.

This funding is unable to support:

  • Employers who receive a Personal Health Budget from the NHS (PHB)
  • PAs who are employed by PHB holders
  • PAs working with children (under the age of 18)
  • Self-employed PAs
