Training

Training for Schools, Pre-schools and childcare providers.

Do you need training to care for children with asthma, eczema or allergies in your educational setting?

The local Children’s Asthma and Allergy service is commissioned to provide specific training for staff looking after children with asthma, eczema and allergies living within the Southend and Castlepoint and Rochford.

As a service we aim to provide training for any settings including childminders, nursery settings, family members who have been unable to attend the initial appointment. We can liaise with schools at the parents request to provide asthma training for children, to support the staff with their care of children with asthma, eczema and allergies.

We are pleased to be able to offer a general training course ‘menu’ which schools and settings can purchase from to meet individual needs at a highly competitive pricing structure, providing value for money from qualified and highly experienced Nurses.
