Bespoke training courses

The KM CAT Service also offers bespoke training, which allows you to tailor the content and format of a course to suit your needs. If you have a large or small group of staff who need introductory level, more advanced or a refresher session; which can take place over a whole day or short workshops, this could be a more practical option for you. Read the Bespoke Training Flyer.

To start the process of identifying what you would like and to generate a quotation from KM CAT for our Bespoke Training Service, please complete and return the Bespoke Training Application Form (PDF, 76.9 KB) by email to either kentcatadmin@kent.gov.uk or kcht.cat-admin@nhs.net.
