Midday Supervisor Training

We offer a range of accredited training packages for lunchtime staff. We deliver high quality training to support them in carrying out their role in a professional manner. Our training packages are 2 hours long so that staff can carry out their duties over lunchtime and can be delivered on your premises.
The cost of a 2 hour training session is £370, however if you have 2 training sessions delivered on the same day/location the cost is £595 (this equates to less than £15 per delegate). Sessions are designed for up to 20 delegates, however should you require more delegate places then please get in touch to discuss.
This training is also suitable for Teaching Assistants, particularly those new to the post. Our training is produced by qualified teachers and our trainers are all educators who understand the challenge staff may face over the lunchtime period.
