Moving and Handling

The moving and handling team in 2010 delivered approximately 3000 training hours to home care. The courses delivered comprised of; 2 day moving and handling induction, 1 day moving and handling refresher courses, ½ day moving and handling updates and on-site equipment training. Over and above this delivery, the team also carried out 266 monitoring visits, to observe staff practises in moving and handling within the client’s homes and 168 comprehensive client risk assessments at manager’s request, for the more challenging moving and handling issues.


Cordia Learning’s moving and handling team also has experience in external training provision. Our bespoke training packages, introduced to accommodate differing needs of our client groups, have proved popular and have helped generate additional service requests from clients, including the undertaking of moving and handling and manual handling specific risk assessments. External training provisions are re-developed annually in partnership with the individual clients. Each customer has their own identity and the training package has been individualised to suit the environment and the requirements of the customer base.
