We have 10 free licences available for carers to access online training for carers that is available from Promas.
The first three courses are free for everyone, to help you understand how the courses work and how they might be helpful. The next five courses can then be accessed by using a code we at Caring Together can provide you with. You will then be able to access all the courses for the following 12 months.
These ‘courses’ are all about providing you with skills to help you as a carer. There is certainly no ‘pass or fail’ and you can use whichever parts of what you learn to benefit you in your personal circumstances.
The sessions include interactive quizzes, videos, downloads and worksheets which cover the following areas:
• Course one: What kind of carer are you?
• Course two: How does caring affect your life?
• Course three: Understanding and coping with challenges
• Course four: Self care
• Course five: How to create a healthy balance
• Course six: Are you stressed?
• Course seven: How to cope with stress
There is support for carers who are using the courses to assist should they need help logging in, lose their password etc. Workbooks to accompany the courses are also available so that carers can make notes and keep written records of how they are progressing.
You can find out more about our free places for this opportunity by contacting our specialist carer advice line on 0345 241 0954 or you can email [email protected]
