We work with partners who are in touch with IVS and help us formulate and direct the training plan as well as implementing new legislation and procedure.
Fully Funded Training Plan
How do we support the IVS, well our main function is that we organise and arrange a training plan that runs from April to March each year with a selection of core training, which is funded via the partnership. The training plan consists of fully funded courses, such as

All courses are delivered in a classroom basis, with some supported by e-learning . The e-learning consists of bite size chunks of half an hour sessions to raise awareness in topics such as Autism and Dementia. Other learning resources include downloadable training materials to use in supervisions or group sessions, this includes the common induction standards.
