We offer Courses at all levels tailored to your needs.

We have trained care home managers, social workers, nurses, doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, care workers, CCG governors and many others.

The recent review by the House of Lords Select Committee highlighted the need for training on the operation of the Mental Capacity Act and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards.

Telos programmes provide an opportunity not just to ensure awareness of the legal requirements and best practice but also to ensure compliance in what is a fast moving legal and regulatory environment.

'Upskilling' your workforce

We recognise that it is often difficult to release staff for half day or day workshops and that groups of staff have different development requirements. This is where our ‘upskilling’ service is helpful – our trainer works with your staff in small groups or individually for up to 90 minutes focusing on how the MCA and DoLs affects their key responsibilities – for example the need for duty workers to think about capacity when dealing with a safeguarding referral.

Following discussion with you about specific staff development requirements we will draw up proposals to use our trainer’s and your staff’s time as effectively as possible. Ask us for further details of this service.
