Social Care Induction Framework (SCIF)


Welcome to our latest blog and we are excited to be starting our Social Care Induction Framework in New Inn Torfaen.

Through my experience it has been very difficult to commit large numbers to attend SCIF Training and therefore I have put together a 5 Day Module designed so that you can book individual Modules or have 1 person on the 5 Full days course.

Starting on the 10th of June and running to the 14th all modules can be booked online at BOOK HERE

Or you can contact me HERE
