For a limited time only places are available at an introductory price of
£78 (ARC Member) and £89 (Non-member)

Recruitment and Selection Workshop

Recruitment and retention are key issues for providers; ARC’s new workshop will help attendees to practice and develop the key skills required in shortlisting, interviewing and selecting the best candidate(s) to a job vacancy.
The course content is designed to be flexible, addressing specific needs and interests of those attending via practical exercises and group work.

Cost: £95 (ARC Member) / £130 (Non Member)

Self-Harm and People with Learning Disabilities Awareness workshop
People with learning disabilities are thought to self-harm at roughly double the rate of the general population. It is being reported to ARC as a growing concern with providers seeing rises in the number of people who self-harm, combined with staff lacking the confidence and skills to deal with the issue.
This one-day workshop is aimed at all staff and managers working with people who do, or may, self-harm.

Costs: £78 (ARC Members) / £89 (Non Members)

Supporting Medication - Train the Trainer workshop
Medication mis-handling accounts for the the majority of adult care service inspections by the CQC. Let us train your trainer to deliver ARC’s Supporting Medication workshop to your staff.

Cost: £130 (ARC Member) and £149 (Non-member)

Mental Capacity Act / Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding Workshops
The CQC’s new framework prioritises safety, with understanding and reporting safeguarding concerns a key issue for many providers.
Our workshop is designed to increase awareness and understanding of the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, which continues to be an area of concern for many providers.

Cost: £78 (ARC Members) and £89 (Non-members)

Understanding Diversity in Learning Disability Services
