Mayor of Middlesbrough presents Council employees with Dementia Care qualification

Learning Curve GroMiddlesbrough council 8up were delighted to attend a presentation at Middlesbrough Council, in which eight members of their staff received their certificates for completing our Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Dementia Care qualification, presented to them by the Mayor Dave Budd. Mayor Budd said: “It is great to see how deeply involved the library service have been in trying to achieve a dementia friendly council here in Middlesbrough through the Certificate in the Principles of Dementia Care. I am impressed by their dedication to improving their knowledge and skills.”

The Certificate in the Principles of Dementia Care qualification provides learners with an appreciation and understanding of the different forms of dementia that may be encountered and gives learner’s the knowledge and skills they need to be able to support individuals with this condition through person-centred care. Jenny O’Donnelly was one of the eight Middlesbrough Council learners to complete the course, she said: “I found this course really beneficial to my working day. It has given me the confidence and knowledge to interact with those who are suffering from Dementia.”

Brenda McLeish, Chief Executive of Learning Curve Group, said: “We work with over 4,500 UK employers, and our distance learning programmes have enjoyed great success. They support people to gain the skills that make a real and lasting difference to their careers, while helping the businesses they work for become more efficient and productive. It’s great to see that Middlesbrough Council have a clear vision, similar to our own, to create a better city through quality education and increasing employment.”
