New premises: please bear with us

As you will know, Hoople Training has now moved to premises close to the heart of Herefordshire's education zone. Our new address is: 

      Churchill House
      Venns Lane
      HR1 1DE

All other contact details - phone numbers, email addresses, etc - remain the same.  

As with all office moves, we are experiencing a few teething problems as we settle in to our new home.  If you are attending a training programme with us in the next few weeks, please bear with us as we make the adjustments we need to upgrade the building.

For example, we know that there are issues around parking and are looking into a long term solution to this problem. In the meantime, we are sending all course participants detailed information about current options when they book a place with us. 

We are also currently unable to offer any lunch facilities so would ask if you could please bring in your own packed lunch or be prepared to buy something for yourself from one of the shops located close by on Foley Lane.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We're sure that we will soon have a training centre that will meet all of our customers' needs and will provide you with the perfect learning environment .   

We will be holding a special open day event later this year for all our past and current customers. Please look out for your personal invitation, coming soon. 

New apprenticeship video

We've been busy compiling a new video, promoting the many benefits of apprenticeships, particularly from the learner's point of view. To view, please click here.

We'd love to hear what you think.  Please email our marketing team.

Pay rise for apprentices

Don't forget that from 1 October, the minimum wage for apprentices will rise from £2.73 per hour to £3.30 per hour.  You must pay at least this amount to all apprentices who are in the first year of their apprenticeship.  If the apprenticeship continues beyond 12 months, and the apprentice is aged 19 or over, you will then be required to pay at least the national minimum wage for their age group.  These rates are also rising from 1st October: to £5.30 for those aged 18-20 and £6.70 for those aged 21 or over.  Of course, you can choose to pay more.

Advanced medication training for domiciliary care managers

After receiving requests for this training from Registered Managers, we have arranged for this whole day course to be run on 13 October. The course looks in detail at medication side effects, drug interactions, controlled drugs, record keeping, policies and procedures, staff competencies and assessment, and how to reduce the incidence of problems and errors occurring, but if they do, how to deal with them. 

There are some places still available and the cost is £135 plus VAT. Please book via CPD online.

Moving and handling trainer refresher

We have been approached to run the above course for existing moving and handling trainers and are proposing to run a Centaur refresher course in October. Attendees will be issued with a certificate from Centaur and Centaur trainers will be exempt from six monthly assessments for one year. The cost of the course would be £150 plus VAT. 

We need to have a minimum of six people to make this viable. If you would like to access this training please register your interest with Caroline Reading on 01432 383500. She will keep you informed of progress with this course.
