Onsite and bespoke training

Would you like forensic mental health training delivered for your staff, on your premises, on a date convenient to you and your team?

We offer a spectrum of onsite and bespoke training routes to reflect your organisation’s budgetary limits, while at the same time providing an opportunity to upskill and expand your employees' capabilities.

  • Onsite training: Let the Forensic Academy deliver our high-quality training in the convenience of your workplace. We can take our courses onsite wherever you are. Just contact our dedicated team for a pre-course consultation to discuss your training requirements.

  • Bespoke courses: We are able to put together packages targeted specifically to meet the needs of your services. We will explore with you, using a Training Needs Analysis Framework, the best ways to meet your objectives and ensure that the training you receive is relevant and cost-effective.

Both of these routes can be delivered at your premises, so your staff can make the best use of their time.
