The Open Training College is to commence offering fundamental training opportunities to support staff in preparation for the implementation of the HIQA Standards.
In a recent survey 94% of staff in services for people with a disability indicated a lack of information about the HIQA Standards and a lack of opportunity to discuss them with colleagues. However, the value of the Standards was cleary recognised:
‘It is vital that services for vulnerable people such as people with disabilities are protected by national standards that are inspected.’ (Survey respondent)
The College offers three levels of training to suit your needs, budget and time constraints. Each level, offered independently, or as part of a series, informs participants about vital aspects surrounding the National Qualifications Standards: Residential Services for People with Disabilities. We go where the training is needed, either regionally or within your organisation.
- Introduction to the HIQA Standards (Level 1) – ½ day workshop (€70 per person)
- Exploring the HIQA Standards (Level 2) – full day workshop (€120 per person)
- Managing the HIQA Standards (Level 3) – full day workshop (€140 per person)
