Schools & Social Care Training

Training Courses

Here at TSK Academy, we have designed and developed a range of tailored courses to suit professions of a human nature. We provide training for the healthcare, social care and childcare sectors and bring you specialist training in a number of areas.

We can offer our courses to individuals, schools and organisations, to help you help others. These training programmes have been specifically designed for those on ground level who work in areas where behaviours of concern are frequent and child development and building trusting relationships from the roots are the key to success for the vulnerable population.
