Building on the successful delivery of courses in 2010 Unique Improvements have expanded their training division and now offer a range of university accredited commissioning training and engagement training courses in partnership with Teesside University.
Managing Director Linda Henry said: “we are very excited about these new commissioning and engagement training courses as they offer a real opportunity to support staff not only in health and social care but also in the third sector. We are expanding and complementing our work in communities with training courses that are practical, informative and will provide staff with greater skills to help make a positive difference”.
The courses cater for all levels and abilities and can be taken with or without completing the university accredited assessment. However, in looking to the future Unique Improvements wanted to ensure a quality product that can add value to an individual’s professional development.
Professor Paul Keane, OBE, Dean, said: “The School of Health and Social Care is pleased to be collaborating and accrediting courses delivered by Unique Improvements Ltd. This is an excellent example of how service providers and Higher Education can work together in ensuring the quality of learning and teaching is enhanced in the best interests of improving patient/service user care”.
The commissioning and engagement training courses are already proving popular and with the option of formal assessment counting towards a university degree many managers see them as an important addition to their CV.
