Training at Medstar

As well as providing specialist support services for adults with complex needs, we provide foundation and specialist training courses for our team and also for external delegates leading to the QCF Diploma in health and social care at various levels, particularly 2 and 3. QCF is the qualifications and credits framework created by the UK government in 2011. The QCF harmonises all vocational (work related) qualifications – see the government’s QCF explanatory video for more information.

Our current courses are shown on the right hand side of the screen. To book a place just email or call us on 020 8882 5222 with the course details that you are interested in.
