A health and social care specialist is launching a new training academy for Northumberland.
Lynette Simpson is opening the Northumbria Training Academy to offer face-to-face training for the care sector.
She has more than three decades of experience in health and social care, starting as a carer and working her way up to becoming a regional manager, teacher trainer and assessor.
She said: “I realised there is very little face-to-face training out there. I have a lot of knowledge and background experience to share.”
The academy is based in Blyth but covers an area from Cramlington to Alnwick.
Training offered includes moving and handling; first aid with CPR; medication; infection control; mental capacity; and safeguarding.
“It all depends on what clients want. Training can be tailored to suit,” said Lynette.
The academy has a training room, complete with hoist, but training can be done off-site at care homes.
