THE TRAINING VENUE
Onsite, there is plenty of room in our training room for both the theory part of the course and the practical sessions which form most of the course. Attendees will be out of their chairs learning practical techniques and transfers rather than being talked at.
For your well deserved breaks there are plentiful hot drinks and chilled water provided throughout the day. If you don’t want to bring your own lunch there are several options within a 5 minute walk; including a Tesco Express, probably the best coffee in Leeds at North Star Coffee Shop (they roast the coffee next door), or street food van Ruby’s Street Kitchen.
Assisted Living Leeds has a large range of moving & handling equipment and handling aids to practise with such as a mobile hoist, a profiling bed, a standing hoist, wheelchairs, a banana board, a leg lifter, a bed lever, a bed ladder, a range of slings and slide sheets etc.
Having a large range of quality equipment to hand helps you practise for delivering training with all types of common moving & handling equipment that you will come across in practice. Sometimes attendees aren’t aware of certain equipment and handling aids, and exposure to it on our Course enables them to suggest equipment and handling aid strategies to make improvements to moving & handling in the workplace.
We look forward to seeing you soon at our fully equipped training venue in Leeds.
