Catherine Parker - Training Consultant

Catherine Parker Solutions – Working in partnership with DJD Social Care Consultants in order to bring quality of life to those most vulnerable.

There are 2 things I am extremely passionate about, other than wine and food, and that is mental health and learning. I believe everyone has the ability to learn, through instruction and interactive, dynamic training I have helped thousands of delegates over the last 15 years approach their caring role with passion and enthusiasm and the right skills and knowledge to perform to the best of their ability. Health and social care training has been a passion of mine which I have been lucky enough to share with others.

I specialise in safe people handling and volunteer for the safeguarding adults board in Bradford as a trainer. I am also a practicing counsellor with psychotherapy and over six years of psychotherapeutic training. This has enabled me to bring an extra dimension into the affirmative courses for a more effective attitude change amongst the experienced delegates that has helped reduce conflict and complacency within the workplace.

Nicola Barnard - Training Consultant

I have over 10 years experience and numerous qualifications in the care sector including NCFE courses and a diploma in leadership in health and social care.

I have worked in care, support and managerial roles during this time as well as working in a school where I taught a range of subjects to physical and learning disabled children aged 11 to 16. I have a passion for and specialise in autism, challenging behaviour and learning disabilities. I thrive in increasing the knowledge of others by sharing my own experiences and knowledge to enable them to deliver the highest standard of care and assist them in their roles.

I have the first-hand experience of CQC inspections and the process by which they audit a care service. I have recently worked alongside commissioners and medical professionals to improve an autistic service during a 12-month improvement plan. I played an integral part in growing the service and developing it. This was a great personal and professional achievement in my career.
