Training will be delivered by GOSH experts (including academics, Nurse Consultants, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Clinical Educators, Nurse Managers and other Allied Health Professionals) with training encompassing classroom and practical training sessions.

We are able to design bespoke training and education programmes to match your requirements.

When developing an education programme for other organisations, we propose that an education and training collaboration is based on an assessment of current and future service needs. Where necessary we can undertake an expert ‘training needs analysis’, which becomes integral to developing a programme that exactly meets your needs.
