Training - Supporting or Handling Medication in the Social Care Sector

We specialise in and are widely known for working with providers of services as opposed to simply selling training. We pay particular attention to identified needs and requirements and whilst some of our courses and programmes can be bought “off the shelf” most of our training is designed to be adapted to meet specific organisational or workrole requirements.

Supporting or Handling Medication in the Social Care Sector

one day taught course

Our most popular and successful course. This is the course that expels more myths and changes more behaviour than any other.

The course is regularly updated to reflect legislation, Care Inspectorate guidance and other relevant sector policy guidance. This improves knowledge, practice, safety, confidence and ultimately can reduce the amount of errors you have to investigate.


One day “in house” course delivered to organisation’s premises £700 (up to 12 people).

“Open” course (ARC arranges venue and individuals can attend from any organisation) £95 per person.

“Train the Trainer Course” (suitable for those with a training responsibility within organisations) £250 per person, includes trainers manual and guidance and CDROM) This is sold on the basis that it will be delivered in house to organisations. It is not sold commercially.

If organisations with less then 12 people needing the training wish to join together and share costs, this is also possible for the one day price – venue must be provided. This is a cost effective option for smaller providers or if freeing up staff is a problem.

Optional certificated assessment paper £10 per person – enquire for more details.
