It is with deep regret that we are announcing that Independent Training and Development is closing. Due to the Impact of COVID and the end of our tenancy in the current premises the Directors took the difficult decision to close the business.

Our last day of training will be Wednesday the 30th of June 2021. All training booked to the end of June will be honoured and delivered to our usual high standards.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your custom over the years and we wish you and your staff well in the future.

Cathy, Sophie, Tasha, and Wendy.

What makes us call ourselves Independent?

Well, we do have one foot in the system but the other is firmly rooted on a path towards change. Change for the better. Because, we, working together with you, have the power to shift attitudes and make the small changes needed in care that will soon add up to great change.

Being on this journey means empowering people working in care to improve the way they work and improve the lives and experiences as many people who rely on care as possible. We do this by providing first class training and support to independent carers, personal assistants, home or domiciliary Registered Managers and their teams.

What we do

We work ways that nurture positivity, confidence and ability from the ground up so that everyone who is supported benefits – not just the person in the room. And you don’t have to pay a premium for this refreshing approach.
