“The area of care of the older person is often complicated, this course helps to focus practice in line with current law”

Julia Horgan, Director of Nursing, St Luke's Home

"We engaged La Touche Training as they have a track record in policy and training on this subject. They worked with us to create a bespoke training package for our staff which highlighted the policy and legal aspects of protection of children and vulnerable adults. Their trainers are experts in this area and have excellent knowledge which was delivered in a very accessible way for all levels of our college.

The skills and competences of the experts in La Touche Training are a key factor in the successful uptake of this training in NCI. We have over 70% of staff trained and we are now looking to bring La Touche Training as our partners for induction training each year for new staff. I am pleased to recommend La Touche Training for any type of legal training."
