Training

To meet the highest possible professional standards, Care Today/Parallel Parents has focused on delivering quality training to staff and other bodies since 1991.

Through this process, it became apparent that, within the current market place, there was a lack of quality training providers aimed at meeting an individual client's needs. Training to Care was established to deliver approved and quality training to a wide client base.

Training to Care is committed to provide high quality training through highly motivated, committed, qualified trainers and consultants.

As a company, we focus on continuous research and development for our training programmes and trainers.

Training to Care delivers training in association with Creative Management Training Solutions(CMTS) Ltd. With this association, a wider area and quality of training can be facilitated.

Training to Care and CMTS deliver the CREATE(tm) personal safety, conflict management and physical intervention training package.

All our courses are individually tailored to facilitate individual client's needs
