HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE
Logistica specialise in the Health and Social Care Sector and hence our courses reflect this. All courses are fully funded by the European Social Fund across Solent, Swindon and Wiltshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lancashire LEP regions.
To be eligible for training, staff must be aged 19 and over, and employed by a company with less than 250 employees.
All delivery of training is at the employer’s premises to minimise disruption, and is usually completed in small groups of four employees at a time. In this way staff can interact with each other and learn in an effective way. This is supported by our trainers assessing staff competence by observing them in the workplace, and by truly flexible learning materials.
The majority of our courses are completed within three months, with full Diplomas taking approximately five months to achieve.
