About Orchard Trust Learning & Development

The Orchard Trust Learning & Development Team has a wealth of knowledge and expertise acquired from working in the teaching and training sectors, management, business and health and social care. We employ our own trainers and also contract in specialist trainers as and when specific expertise is required.

 

The Orchard Trust Learning & Development Department has a well-deserved reputation for delivering high quality, engaging training that learners are able to effectively put into practice  back in the workplace.  We offer this service to both our own staff and to external organisations, and we are proud to have worked on partnership projects with national bodies such as Skills for Care.

We take pride in our training and we are able to meet all your requirements, whether it be a single place on one of our open courses or bespoke programmes for staff groups - either at our purpose built training lodge here in the Forest Of Dean, or at your own setting.  Our training covers many topics for those working in the Health and Social Care, and other sectors of business, and also includes Leadership Skills courses with associated subject-specific workshops such as Appraisals, Supervisions, Handling Conflict. 

Our training is always linked to the requirements of appropriate bodies (such as the Care Quality Commission) and we offer several fully accredited courses through awarding bodies such as City & Guilds (Medications), Qualsafe (First Aid), and Highfield (Food safety). Our Safeguarding Adults, MCA/DoLs and Dementia Awareness courses are all GCC Level 2 accredited courses and are facilitated by GCC authorised trainers.

  • Residents from a local care home visited the Orchard Trust activity park and smallholding site.  They tried out the park equipment and met some of the animals.  It is fantastic to see a range of people using the activity park and getting so much out of it.  We welcome anyone to come and visit the site and use the equipment, we just ask that you please call Phill or George on 01594 861359 to let them know you are coming.
