In-Depth Courses

Moving and Handling Courses  

We offer two versions of our non-residential* moving and handling course, both of them practical and enjoyable moving and handling courses.

The one day course is only £45 per delegate (including lunch), and integrates moving and handling theory with plenty of practical hands on training. The two day course is only £90 per delegate (including lunch), and extends the one day course to cover both care and the outdoor environments.

Disabled Holiday archery



"Our students really enjoyed themselves. The instructor was helpful and got to know them very well - he was also very patient! Abseiling canoeing and crate stacking were brilliant - appropriate, challenging and fun. In general the services especially catering and cleaning were outstanding."
