Meet the Education and Development Team

Our Education and Development Team of experienced practitioners work in a spirit of collaboration and co-operation, helping people to achieve their personal, professional and organisational goals.

Our exciting learning and development courses include clinical skills, clinical management, ‘having important conversations’, social and psychological care and specialist interest areas for people working, and involved, in palliative and end-of-life care.

Our training courses are inclusive, embracing an ‘all teach, all learn’ philosophy and recognise education is more than just gaining knowledge. We use a range of methods to ensure the education we offer is not only relevant and in line with best practice, but is also of high quality and enjoyable, in our beautiful new facilities overlooking Bray Lake.
