OTC launches new Foundation Online Programme for People Working in Residential Services!

Covid-19 has brought extensive challenges to all of us, not least ensuring that staff cover is provided in service areas that remain open and ensuring that staff are well informed working in areas possibly unfamiliar to them.

The OTC Solution

We are now offering a 12-module Foundation ONLINE Programme to people working in Residential Services.


OTC Online Courses

Who is it for?

The programme is ideal professional development for:

  • employees already in role but who wish to refresh skills and knowledge;
  • new recruits holding a Level 5 but need in-depth understanding to deliver high quality, safe, person centered services;
  • staff redeployed to work in an unfamiliar area.

The Programme

The programme covers areas such as PCP and Rights, Positive Behaviour Support, Intimate and Personal Care, Records and Report Writing in addition to the key legislatively required areas.
