Activity Coordinator Training

An empowering training for new Activity Coordinators and old hands alike

Over the past 12 years we have heard from over 6,500 Activity Coordinators from all parts of the UK. They've told us what they want and need, which is to be able to to do their work in the very best way so that they can have happy residents. To meet these needs Suzanne Mumford, a Dementia Nurse Specialist with an MSc in Training in Dementia Care, has developed a training for Activity Coordinators. We are holding trainings throughout the year all over the UK.

  • What can I expect on the day?

The day is very practical. Around 50% of the day covers training in general, activities and the practicalities of working with people living with dementia. The remaining 50% of the day looks at how to best use resources (The Daily Sparkle is used as the practical example). However, the content is layered, covering aspects of both the above rather than trying to keep them separate. You can find a training day course outline here

  • What will I get on completion of the training?

You will be presented with a Training Certificate which can be used with your Continuous Personal Development log. You will also be able to support one another in a peer-to-peer activity coordinators group.

Over the past 12 years we have heard from over 6,500 Activity Coordinators from all parts of the UK. Some were new to the role of Activity Coordinator and others were 'old hands'. They’ve told us what they want and need, which is to be able to do their work in the very best way so they can have the very happiest residents. 

They told us they wanted more support, ideas and confidence in their roles as activity coordinators. They also wanted to know how to keep activity records as needed by the CQC and how to make activity plans. They also wanted happy residents and care home staff. With this in mind Suzanne Mumford, a Dementia Nurse Specialist and CQC Specialist Nurse Advisor (Dementia), has developed an Activity Coordinator training that will empower you.
