DLF announces collaboration with BHTA
The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) and the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) are pleased to announce a new joint initiative that will see them collaborating on training courses for the healthcare industry.
The combined team will be working together to develop and deliver a range of industry-specific, high quality training.
DLF Training has long specialised in equipment-related courses with topics such as Moving and Handling people. The team will now deliver BHTA’s current training programme and develop new modules for the future. BHTA’s current courses include pressure care, stoma care and assistive technology and the range is set to be expanded as a result of consultation with member organisations.
Courses will continue to be provided by trainers specialising in the subject, who will use a range of products and techniques to provide learners with insights into services users’ needs and requirements.
Ed Mylles, DLF’s Interim Director said: “With DLF’s heritage of excellence in equipment-related training for healthcare professionals and BHTA’s pre-eminence as the industry’s trade and standards body, it is a natural partnership. We are delighted to be continuing to work closely with the BHTA to benefit the trade members and customers that both organisations serve.”
Information on forthcoming courses will be published on DLF’s website shortly.
