Medication Training For Schools and Colleges

At Momentum People we recognise that it is not just care homes and domiciliary care services who need support, guidance and training in the safe administration of medicines but that as a school or college, you have to meet the requirements of OFSTED and the CQC and need training that is tailored to meet your specific needs. That's why Momentum People have designed, tried and tested this course especially for you in the Safe Administration of Medicines in Schools and Colleges. We work with you to include your own policies, procedures and paperwork (or help you to develop those polcies and paperwork systems)  in this one day, face to face training session to ensure that your teachers and support staff have a better understanding of how to manage medicines safely in your school or college and the records that need to be kept to evidence this.
