20/09/19

Consultus Care & Nursing officially celebrated the grand opening of their new expanded, Training Centre, where local MP, Tom Tugendhat was on hand to unveil the new training facilities.  This was followed by a champagne reception and a tour of the new centre.  

Susan Antenbring Training Manager comments “We were thrilled to welcome Tom Tugendhat to our new purpose-built training centre, to take the opportunity to showcase our wonderful facilities and demonstrate our passion for delivering the highest quality carer training”. 

The long-established Tonbridge based company continues to go from strength to strength and this   latest investment reinforces our on-going commitment to train and develop carers to meet the increasing demand for live-in care.  Peter Seldon CEO clarified, “The training centre is an integral part of Consultus which has been successfully providing carers and nurses across the UK for nearly 60 years”.  The training centre is endorsed by the UK Statutory body, ‘Skills for Care’ as a “Centre of Excellence” and is accredited by Edexcel Pearson to offer a variety of BTEC and Diploma qualifications.  With a nationwide shortage of carers, Consultus is at the forefront of alleviating the national social care crisis and provides a vital service to many hundreds of older people and their families in their own homes,  via professionally trained carers.  

The company offers a real difference by supporting these families at extremely challenging times and thus making a real impact on the quality their lives.  In his opening speech Tom Tugendhat MP outlined, “This isn’t just a training place; it underpins something that is fundamental about the way we live today.  Consultus Care enables people to be as independent and free for as long as it possible, and that is such a gift. Live-in care unlocks the ability to stay at home with family and friends, giving people dignity this is hugely liberating.”

With the additional training capacity, Consultus are able to deliver a comprehensive selection of care-related training courses including Parkinson’s, dementia, stroke, diabetes, end of life and the First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work qualifications.   The award-winning Consultus Care Training Centre can now offer training opportunities to local care organisations, businesses and individuals as well as our very own community of live-in carers.  Consultus Care is an industry leader and has been at the cutting edge of the care sector promoting inspirational and innovative training for individuals working within the care industry.
