DaCE Cumbria arranges training throughout Cumbria, to ensure that Personal Assistants (PAs) can access training locally.
The most popular sessions we arrange are Moving & Handling, Safeguarding, Infection Prevention, Safe Handling of Medication and Emergency First Aid at Work. We can arrange other sessions based on individuals training needs, such as Diabetes Awareness, or Autism Awareness.
Feedback we receive from the PAs and employers after attending training is positive and often leads to further training.
“ DACE Cumbria arranged training for my whole team of PAs for a time and place that was convenient for us and the courses were very informative “ Elaine, Copeland
