Social care training


In order to assist with the prevention and containment of the Covid-19 virus, all Denbighshire training courses will be cancelled until September 2020. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but trust you will appreciate the reason for this. We will try to rearrange new dates for these courses as soon as possible and will contact you again when we do.

Social Care Wales: information and resources to guide you through Covid-19

We provide free training courses for providers of social care across the whole sector in Denbighshire.

We have worked with social care providers, members of the Social Care Workforce Development Partnership, and the local authority management teams to identify what the training needs are, and we have designed the training around these needs.
