First Response Training has provided training courses for Health and Social Care staff for over 25 years. Our courses guide workers in the Health and Social Care sector along the training pathway, from induction right through to higher level and special focus training. We have over 100 qualified trainers located throughout the UK, meaning we can train Health and Social Care staff across England, Scotland and Wales. All trainers teaching Health and Social Care topics are carefully chosen based on their relevant experience.
Our Health and Social Care training courses are available in a variety of delivery methods, including traditional in-person classroom delivery, online videocall webinars, distance learning workbooks and eLearning. Health and Social Care Annual Learner Passes are available for eLearning. This provides access to 22 eLearning courses for a full year at £44 per learner (£2 per course).
