Sleep Training for NHS Trusts

We offer bespoke sleep training courses for all child health professionals working in the NHS. These courses run over the course two or three days according to the needs of your team, and we can come to you where ever you are in the country.  Courses are evidence based and all research is fully referenced. Our courses are accredited by the Continuing Professionals Development Standards Office 

Our courses are designed to cover sleep issues in all children including those with complex additional needs.

Costs start from £2700 for a two day course for up to 12 delegates. If there are more than 12 delegates (up to 40) the cost will probably be higher than this as we will need to bring an additional team member in order to effectively facilitate group session which are an integral part of the training, as these allow participants to practice writing sleep management programmes.
