The Orkney team

Today 10 staff employed by Orkney Isles Council successfully completed a five day intensive training course on how to risk assess, then train staff on how to move and handle people with disabilities across the 20 inhabited Orkney Islands above mainland Scotland. A long trip to work but rewarded by a 100% pass rate from really enthusiastic staff who will all be shortly awarded with a Level 3 qualification for their efforts..
