Fully accredited courses to help support you in caring for someone with dementia


Our online courses focus on the essential knowledge and skills needed to support and enable people living with dementia and their carers to live as well as possible, whether they live at home or in a residential care home.

We have 4 courses launching 11 January 2021 and will be adding to these on a regular basis to provide a wide range of learning opportunities.

Access the courses anytime, anywhere.

All our online courses are endorsed by NAPA, fully recognised as CPD and ideal if you are an activity coordinator wishing to enhance your knowledge.

In-Person Training For Activity Coordinators


Due to the coronavirus situation, we have decided to suspend all our in-person trainings for now. We will reschedule events once official advice allows. If you have already booked on to a training, your bookings will be secure for the rescheduled event. If you are unable to attend on the new date, we will refund you. We wish you and those you care for all the best in these challenging times.

Supporting staff to create a happy home

Over the past ten years, we have been listening to our subscribers’ wants and needs. Our mission at The Daily Sparkle is to be the Activity Coordinators’ Friend, so we have created two bespoke training days to assist you in your work.

Daily Sparkle is an Endorsed Provider with Skills for Care and a recognised supplier for NAPA so you can be assured of a high quality training experience. Take a look below to see which training day is right for you.

The training days have been created by our highly experienced Training Consultant and Activity Specialist Helen Johns, who has expertise in dementia care, the requirements of regulatory bodies (CQC etc), and advises care organisations on their activity provision. The training days are delivered by Helen and other experienced trainers who have expertise in running networks for activity coordinators, facilitating memory groups, and delivering activity improvement programmes.

On completion of either of our training days, you will receive a certificate that can evidence your Continuing Professional Development.

Our In-Person Training Is Skills For Care Endorsed

The Skills for Care endorsement framework is the bespoke quality mark for learning and development providers within the adult social care sector. Skills for Care helps create a well-led, skilled and valued adult social care workforce.

Our Skills For Care endorsement shows:

  • Our exemplary commitment to meeting the needs of our learners.
  • Compliance with the social model of care.
  • We measure the impact of our training on the lives of the people who need care and support.
  • Our provision can be directly mapped to the Leadership Qualities Framework.

I found the training day sooo helpful! We were given very practical helpful tips and resources. Unlike other courses, I felt The Daily Sparkle’s was more thoroughly researched, planned and evidence-based. Loved the training on CST and all the resources given. Was a boost in confidence to receive this. Many many thanks! Will definitely be looking for more training in future.
