Our 6 Hour Foundation courses are only offered "in house", bespoke and designed for specific workplaces. We do not run general courses that outside participants can join in.
An initial visit by the lead trainer, meeting with management, will determine the content of the course. Team Teach Ltd's courses are delivered "in house" to meet specific workplace behavioural safety needs.
At the booking stage, no financial commitment is made. There will need to be a discussion with the allocated lead trainer with regard to any travel, accommodation or subsistence costs. These should be agreed before the initial visit, where with senior leadership and management, course content is discussed, training venue risk assessed and advice on paperwork underpinning practice provided if appropriate.
