Moving and Handling People

There are two options for this course, either a one-day 6-hour course which involves theory and practical elements or a half-day 4-hour course which focuses only on the theory. Both of these courses are for staff who work with people and may have to support them to move or to support them with their personal care. All staff should complete this course annually due to the need to be fully up-to-date with their statutory manual handling responsibilities.
