I have just attended the Autism and Learning Disability Train the Trainer session. The Trainers experience, insight and clear way of explaining the subject has helped me to understand more than previous learnings have, it has given me the knowledge to pass this onto others. Thank you.

Safeguarding Train the Trainer course

I completed the safeguarding training with Debbie, who kept the training upbeat and engaging at all times. Considering the training is based around a lot of legislation Debbie manged to make it interesting and fun. She was very approachable and down to earth with a wealth of knowledge. I would highly recommend the training with Allium.

Assessment in the Community Moving and positioning Course Level 3

Thank you Sangita, from the first seeds of an idea for a bespoke training course, through discussion, planning and finally arranging the training dates, the whole Alium Training team have been efficient and effective. I look forward to having an ongoing professional relationship with the team.

- Natasha Coombes , Training Manager, Bluebird Care Richmond & Twickenham

They (Alium) really are one of the very best out there.

Bluebird Care operates across 6 different countries, with approx. 240 locations. We have used Alium Care Training for the past couple of years, initially to oversee our provision of Train the Trainer courses. Despite working with the challenges that are present when operating with a large franchise network and during a pandemic, nothing has been too much effort or too much work for Sangita and her team. Determination, drive, positivity and enthusiasm define what Alium deliver, alongside outstanding training content. We have any number of testimonials from our network that demonstrate this.

Alium also continue to show how adaptable they are as an organisation, not only working alongside us as we navigate 6 different regulators but also constantly reviewing content to ensure it is fit for purpose, as well as reviewing what is happening in the ever-changing world of Health and Social Care, devising new courses as required.

Our intention in the coming months is to really build on our relationship with Alium, making the most of not only the courses that are already utilised within the network, but also now look at the Skills for Care content, as well as the new custom content that is being created at the moment.

As a provider of Health and Social Care services, I’d highly recommend Alium Care Training.

I thoroughly enjoyed the BLS Train the Trainer course that I completed with Alium last week. I was completely new to this but found that the Trainer broke down the course well, making it understandable and easy to apply. The Trainer was knowledgeable and able to answer questions and my director, who overheard some of the course, said she could understand what was being taught as well.

The Trainer gave me confidence to create my own training for staff, which I have begun to put together and I am looking forward to completing the medication and manual handling training in the near future.

- Laura Nightingale , Care Manager – Bluebird, Care Manchester North

I've really enjoyed the train the trainer manual handling , it was visual and informative, have learned new things and remembered old parts of my training. Was worried about presenting but the feedback we got was really good from the trainer and the other people on the course.

- Julie Fox, Cherwell and North Bucks

I was sceptical about the beforehand as my last Train the Trainer course was appalling (not with Alium). However this training was informative and interesting, I learnt a lot and came away with new ideas and a fresh approach to Moving & Positioning training.

- Gill Ansell , Deputy Manager - Elmbridge & Runnymede

I have enjoyed all of my training courses with Alium and have gained a lot of knowledge in the process, I’m now looking more forward to delivering training!

- Jessica Atherton, – Nottingham

A was extremely nervous about the mini session and also not very well. I spoke to on her own and suggested that when she was better I would arrange to observe her mini session but she said she wanted to try. Unfortunately she observed other delegates deliver first who did excellent sessions which made her more nervous, so she started delivery but then froze so she stopped. After I caught up with her and asked if she wanted to arrange another time but asked if she get it over with and deliver to me now. A was nervous and that did come across but she got through the presentation and we did the activities we had agreed on and it went fine. However, before she delivers, she needs to read around subject area and also needs to shadow other trainers, produce her own lesson plan, materials etc. I also suggest she co-delivers small sections of the course to get her confidence up

- Delegate

I found the instructor was very knowledgeable about the topic. She was very friendly and welcoming, and she said a few times “there is no silly questions” this made me feel at ease when asking questions

I learned lots from the training and now feel confident in writing my own lesson plan, learning aims and giving a lesson on moving and handling to new and existing staff.

- Louise Morgan, Customer Supervisor - Fareham

Massive improvement in confidence from last TTT session, A has developed a good understanding of the training process and has excellent knowledge of M&P. Her mini session was interactive and she was a lot less nervous then last time. Still advise she co-delivers with main trainer till her confidence increases but has potential to be a great trainer as she is knowledge and friendly, bubbly and approachable. Well done, it was nice to see how far she has come over the 4 days

- Alium Trainer

I wanted to also thank you for your time and for being incredibly helpful. It is reassuring to have such a hands on training company who provides detailed feedback following our staff completing your training.
It is clear to see that you and your team are passionate about delivering a high standard of training. I have only ever had positive experiences when dealing with Alium and look forward to booking more training with you.

- Nicola Bowditch, Operations Manager, Bluebird Care (Kensington & Chelsea)

I attended TTT Basic Life Support in June 2022 with Alium Care. It was by far one of the best courses I have been on. The Trainer was friendly, funny, engaging, enthusiastic and non-judgemental – I felt completely relaxed and at ease. There was absolutely no pressure; only encouragement to contribute when she could see you wanted to speak. The vary of videos, slides, discussions & group activities were balanced equally, and it made for a completely GREAT learning experience. I very much look forward to further training with Alium care – A GREAT TRAINING PROVIDER, and my first recommendation!

I thought I would drop you guys an email just to say how happy I was to see Alium Training becoming an approved provider for the Bluebird Care Network, I have being using Alium since early this year and can say they have been very helpful and fit our business needs perfectly. In business it’s all about good relationships and I truly believe Sangita has this to the tee, I hope we can build on this and help everyone to not only be compliant in their businesses but also achieve CQC OUTSTANDING rating across the board.

- Naeem Ahmed, Managing Director , Bluebird Care (Stockport) / (Manchester South)

As a new start up we wanted to ensure our training program was to a high standard. After speaking with multiple training providers, I got the impression they were just there to fill up slots. However upon speaking with Alium Care Training, they took the time to understand my needs and provided a plan of action. We have since completed our training and were amazed at how valuable it was, it also gave us the confidence to deliver the best training possible that reinforced our policies and procedures. Couldn’t be happier and will now be our training provider of choice moving forward.

- Mo Fazal, Director, Bluebird Care (Pontypridd)

The moving and positioning Train the Trainer course has really helped me to develop as a trainer. It helped me identify that delivering training isn't just about delivering the training using PowerPoint. It's so much more than that! Sangita helped me recognise the importance of planning the training to ensure the content is suitable for the audience and ensuring the content enables the learners and me to meet the aims and objectives of the training. Being given all this knowledge and benefiting from Alium Training's experience has helped me to grow professionally and boosted my confidence in delivering in house training. I would recommend for any new trainers or trainers who just want to ensure they are getting it right. The course moves at a steady pace and is suitable for office staff of all levels to attend.

- Tracy Heaven, Care Manager, Bluebird Care Pontypridd

An amazing training course, even though I am experienced as a trainer, the course still gave me a lot of new material. And the trainer was great too, very engaging and made sure that everyone understood the course content. Would highly recommend.

- Stefanie Cooper, Trainer, Bluebird Care North Hampshire & West Berkshire

I found the course I attended from Alium care training very well delivered and very professional but relaxed at the same time. I was offered time to ask any questions and learn at my own pace. I would highly recommend this company for any care training.

- Jady Starr, Registered Care Manager, Bluebird Care North Hampshire & West Berkshire

Sangita and Laura have both been extremely helpful and accommodating. We have received great feedback from our first booking of the Safeguarding course which was run by Jackie. The team are looking forward to completing further modules.

- Sophie Nutley,HR Manager, Bluebird Care (Chichester, Epsom, Reigate, Sussex Wald, Sutton)

I have been on many training courses, and this is the first time I have been trained by Alium Care Training. I had never heard of them before. I was impressed with the delivery and interaction of the course, The trainer was very professional, approachable, and informative. She made you feel at easy from the off. I have training with her next week, and I am looking forward to it. I would recommend Alium Care Training to others .
