This course is designed to help you upskill and gain employment in the Residential Childcare industry. We will help you take your first steps into this specialist world, looking at safeguarding, behaviour, and the legislation that guides those who work with vulnerable children and young people.

You will undertake classroom taught sessions around these subjects, complete workbooks, and present back to your classmates about the subjects you have undertaken.

You will need to attend the course for two weeks, for eight sessions, taking place from Monday to Thursday, 10am to 3pm.

Industry Links

Throughout the course you will benefit from delivery from trainers who have worked in the industry and so can give you an insight into their experiences. You will also have the opportunity for a question and answer session with current staff members employed in the residential sector. They will be able to give you a ‘real time’ insight into the industry, its challenges, and how they have adapted to overcome these.
