CECOPS welcomes 4 new Approved Trainers
CECOPS is glad to welcome four new Approved Trainers. There is a growing interest in the training side of CECOPS as more people are coming forward to either be trained on the Code of Practice, or to become CECOPS Approved Trainers themselves.
Three senior members of staff from Hereward College have recently undergone training to become CECOPS Approved Trainers. Hereward College is a general further education College in Coventry.
The college has developed an expertise in assessing for and providing a broad spectrum of Assistive Technologies across the living and learning environments, including technologies commonly known as community equipment.
Paul Doyle, Access, Research and Development Manager at Hereward College, and now a CECOPS Approved Trainer, said, the Code of Practice ‘is a ground-breaking and much needed initiative’.
Also, Andrew Garforth, a Training Officer for Leeds community equipment and telecare service has also been trained. Andrew currently provides training to local authority and NHS staff.
There will also soon be a Post Graduate Certificate available related to the Code of Practice. This will cover Commissioning, Service Provision and Clinical and Professional Responsibilities.
