Moving & Assistance Training

Our comprehensive moving and assistance courses ensure you are confident and proficient at moving and assisting practices within health and social care.

Working within health and social care often involves the safe moving and handling of vulnerable people.

Our moving and assisting training course is designed to educate participants regarding both the requirements and risks associated with moving people from one location to another and how to do so safely.

Lifting poses a big risk to all parties as poor lifting techniques and incorrect equipment can lead to serious injury. We provide industry-standard specialist equipment to assist throughout the practical training sessions – ensuring staff know when and how to use it while following the safest techniques.

Our Moving and Assistance course is carried out over the course of two days with day 1 consisting of theoretical practice and day 2 consisting of using the various pieces of equipment and familiarising candidates with the different lifts and procedures. Trainers will work with candidates on this until they are fully confident.

After this course, staff will:

  • Be able to demonstrate safe lifts and move clients in a dignified and respectful way

  • Be able to assess the associated risks

  • Understand relevant Health and Safety Legislation

  • Know how to protect yourself and the people using the service from unsafe manoeuvres
