Keep up with CPD

Keeping up with the training requirements of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and ensuring you or your team maintain the right skills to perform at the highest level in your role can be challenging. Utilising the skilled Bramble training team and booking onto one of the many training days available will help you tick off those crucial hours towards maintaining CPD. 

Flexible options

Whether you're a self-employed health and social care worker looking to maintain your skills, a business looking to book private training for your team or one of Bramble Home Care's care staff, every member of the health and social care industry is welcome to attend Bramble Home Care training sessions. We offer flexibility with private courses or places on existing training days available to book now.

Gain new skills

If you work in health and social care you will already know that there are multiple facets to everything we do, requiring some general but also some very specific skills. If you are looking to take your career into a new direction by gaining new skills, or if you are a business with a specialist team, we’d love to help you to gain the all-important knowledge you need.
