Our short courses are designed to provide flexible, high quality training on demand to both groups and individuals either in their own workplace or on TfC premises. All courses are led by qualified and experienced subject specialists, with course directors and lead tutors to oversee quality assurance. Fees are kept as low as possible to encourage access and to contribute to standards of care.
Courses in First Aid, Food Hygiene, Health & Safety, and Moving & Handling are suitable for all service sector occupations. All other courses have been developed to meet specific adult care and childcare sector requirements.
