Moving and Handling of People

This Train the Trainer course is designed for those looking to train others in the safe moving and handling of people within a care setting, ensuring that they are aware of the relevant legal guidelines which they must meet. In addition to being taught how to practically apply a range of moving and handling techniques in the workplace, delegates will gain an understanding of biomechanics and ergonomics.

A large part of the course focuses on training methods so new instructors are able to answer any difficult questions from their trainees. Once the course has been completed, your organisation will benefit from having a moving and handling trainer and advisor on site.

Important Information:

  • We will provide the training on your premises.
  • The training environment will need to be quiet and undisturbed.
  • Staff will need to give the course their full attention and should not be on duty.
  • Staff attendance is required on both days for the whole session.

About This Course

The Moving and Handling Train the Trainer takes place over 2 days. Delegates will be expected to engage in several involved group activities. Continuous assessment will take place throughout the course. Attendees will be evaluated on their knowledge and ability to train others.

    We are very proud of the excellent reviews we collect from people who both organise and participate in our Training Courses.

    The tutor was particularly good in explaining herself and incorporating members of the group. My second train the trainer, this one was more enjoyable.

    Good day, new knowledge will help people become more effective. Confident now-to distribute new information to colleagues.

    I particularly liked Stella’s way of explaining and practical side of things. Stella was very professional and gave great ideas in order to train others ourselves.
