As the training arm of Advocacy First, we provide quality tuition and training through a team of qualified trainers, assessors and moderators.
All employees – paid staff and volunteers – must attend our courses and be fully trained before working as advocates and seeing clients.
From 2011, enhanced training on specific subjects such as the mental capacity act, deprivation of liberty and safeguard will be implemented. Further and additional training and support will be made available as needs are identified.
Additionally, we offer accredited courses to anyone wishing to add to their qualifications.
