SOS Training delivers training for internal employees and on behalf of external organisations. Our training services are delivered face-to-face to meet the diverse needs of our employees and customers. Our training is managed and led by our Training Manager, Ian Sanderson, who is an experienced trainer in health and social care courses. Below is further information on the facilities we have and the courses we offer.


Our training suites situated at each of our offices in Stretford, St.Helens and Crewe, offer us the ability to provide training for our care and support worker's whenever we or they require it. With access to a LCD Screen display, Projector, laptop and a library of training materials, we can offer bespoke training delivered through different mediums to suit the attendees and the organisation concerned.

Internal Training

All SOS Homecare employees undertake a comprehensive induction, prior to delivering any care or support, covering the 15 Care Certificate Standards. The induction consists of the following courses:

  • Roles and Responsibilities (Standards 1 & 2)
  • Principles and Values of Care (Standards 3,4,5,6 & 7)
  • Fluids, Nutrition and Food Hygiene (Standard 8)
  • Dementia, Mental Health & Learning Disabilities (Standard 9)
  • Safeguarding of Adults (Standard 10)
  • Safeguarding of Children (Standard 11)
  • Basic Life Support (Standard 12)
  • Health & Safety (Standard 13)
  • Handling Information (Standard 14)
  • Infection Control (Standard 15)

In addition we also provide additional courses during the induction, that are above and beyond the Care Certificate:

  • Pressure Sores
  • Manual Handling
  • Medication
  • Continence and Stoma Care
  • Diabetes
  • Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards

Following the completion of their Care Certificate we encourage all employees to progress on to their Diploma in Health & Social Care (Level 2 or 3). The company has a strong commitment to the development of our employees and believes it is integral to the quality of services delivered to those individuals we care and support.

External Training

At SOS Training we have identified that it is not always possible to have in house trainers and therefore feel we are in prime position to offer training to a wider audience be it at our Stretford office or at your premises. In the future demand for training will increase particularly for people unable to access the training provided by the Trafford Training Consortium, for that reason we are able to offer our training services to organisations throughout the North West region. We are certain that SOS Training has the flexibility, competence and passion to deliver the highest standards of training.

SOS Training offer face-to-face training delivered by Ian Sanderson and/or Osman Malik. For available dates, prices and times please contact Ian on 0161 877 4459 for more information or use our enquiry form.
