Our Courses

We're pleased to offer a varied programme of practical and developmental courses. These are facilitated through a range of teaching methods; experiential learning, case studies, rehearsal, group work and reflective learning.

Our courses are open to health and social care staff who are involved in supporting patients at the end of life and their families and friends, wherever they work.

We offer training for staff working in care homes and domiciliary care, delivered within your own workplace.  For more information about training for care homes and domiciliary care organisations click here.

We also work collaboratively with other hospices in our area to deliver training courses and workshops. These may be delivered at one of our Rennie Grove sites or at another local hospice.
