Work Based Learning - Health and Wellbeing at Work


A fantastic opportunity are the words Janine Bennett and Tess Horobin used to describe their Palliative [Care] level 4 training course at Bangor University. Janine and Tess have made the 342-mile return journey from Trealaw to Bangor in order to access the fully funded and university accredited training. We have gained so much knowledge from just one day that we can't wait to go again The university has provided the training, travel, accommodation and food.

Janine and Tess saw the incredible courses available on the Health and Wellbeing at Work program and both jumped at the chance to enrol not only to improve their skills but to enable them to provide the best care and service for everyone they support in Cartrefi Cymru.

Both Janine and Tess will continue to attend the courses in North Wales, which we see them travelling thousands of miles over the next few weeks, however, despite their marathon the ladies have no hesitation in recommending the training and would urge anyone who is interested in any of the remaining courses sign up and take up the same learning opportunities as they have.

Without the Work Based Learning Health and Wellbeing I would not have been aware of the opportunities available and it is unlikely that I would have done any research to do my chosen course, the funding available brought this to my attention.

By doing this course I now have a more pragmatic approach and able to deal with issues without taking things personally, appreciating group dynamics and I feel this will be of benefit to our Organisation
