Moving & Handling Mission Statement 2023-24

Here is some great feedback from recent courses held in school:

Trainers were so approachable and very adaptable, they answered all the questions regarding our own needs to help the students in our own setting” Local Primary School

This course today has been fantastic, very useful to my work. I have worked for DMBC & Trust for 21 years and have attended lots of M&H courses. This is the best.” Residential Children's Facility

“Increased confidence and understanding of handling skills and safety with additional support given relevant to the needs of our school”. – Assistant Head & Class Teacher in Mainstream Junior School.

The course touched upon things beyond what I had expected. What was relevant was helpful, the other content will be hugely beneficial in the future. I found it gave me an insight into preserving the dignity of a child, not just the ability to look after yourself. This is a course I hope will stay with me throughout any school experience.  – LSA at Mainstream High School.

A very appropriate course, gives me a great understanding of the dos and don'ts
