Opening Doors London, the largest provider of training and consultancy for health and social care professionals working with older LGBT+ people, has been endorsed by Skills for Care as meeting their national standards for quality learning and development in adult social care.
Training and Consultancy Manager Jim Glennon is delighted with the result, less than a year since the new training offer was developed.
“We knew that we had a great set of courses, and learner feedback to date has confirmed this, with 93% saying they felt better able to improve LGBT+ care and support after attending one of our workshops, but this major endorsement is the icing on the cake for us. Everyone appreciates that Skills for Care is synonymous with quality in the care sector and having their full support lends great credibility to the training and consultancy we offer.”
Tailored to the needs of frontline health and social care workers, with additional courses for care managers, Opening Doors London training is unique in being designed and delivered by older LGBT+ trainers who work in teams to deliver a training experience that is highly experiential. All endorsed courses are based on the latest research and policy, helping staff stay abreast of the issues, meet their legal requirements and improve the quality of care and support for all.
