Wellbeing FAQs

How do I purchase training credits?

You can book places for a number of our training courses online by viewing upcoming courses. For training packages, please call 0151 236 6608 to speak to a member of the team who can discuss your requirements and process your order. Alternatively, you may prefer to complete an Enquiry Form found on our Training page.  

How long do I have to use my training credits?

We understand that you may not know what training is needed right now, and that’s okay. This is why we give you 12 months from the date of purchase to use your credits. The benefits of this are: 

  • Perfect if you have an annual budget to spend on training and wish to receive great discounts.
  • Gives you time to assess what training is required, and share information with your employees and management teams. 
  • Purchase training in line with your wellbeing programme and wellbeing calendar for that year. 

Ask our sales team for further information on the different training sessions that are available.

How do I use my credits once I have purchased them?

All you have to do is contact our team and tell them what session you would like as well as the date and time you would like the training to take place. We will do the rest. When the session has been confirmed, you will receive a registration link. The link asks for the name and email address of the attendee. You can send this to individuals, or one person from your organisation can complete all of your attendee information. 

How do you deliver your training sessions?

We deliver training face-face and online. Currently, we have suspended our face-face training and are only providing virtual training. We use GoToWebinar and GoToTraining to deliver our courses. This software requires no download by users, and it means that we can provide the following: 

  • Interactive sessions that actively encourage participation using breakout areas, question & answer sessions and open discussions. The perfect virtual classroom experience.
  • Pre-recorded workforce training modules that are designed to deliver key messages consistently across your workforce.
  • Registration, attendee and feedback reports that can be shared with you at your request.

 

Are you interested in training that we don't have on our website?

Not a problem! We work with several affiliates and can accommodate a whole host of training. Get in touch and let us know your requirements, and we will do the rest. 

Can you deliver on-site training and health checks?

Yes, however, we have put a temporary hold on both. We will be continually reviewing this in line with government advice. If you have any requirements, let us know and we can see how we are able to assist.
