We have over 20 years’ experience of meeting and adapting to the changing needs of the health and social care sectors. We recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work so our trainers adapt delivery methods to match learners’ needs.

All of our clinical courses are authored and delivered by practicing clinical specialists who maintain senior positions within the health and social care sector. This ensures that all staff receive up-to-date, evidence-based delivery from experts who remain abreast of clinical developments. Our specialist trainers work within the sector and therefore understand the current challenges facing today’s health and social care professionals. They are employed as nurse consultants, clinical ward managers / senior charge nurses and advanced clinical practitioners / specialists.

Paramedic (August 2017)
"It is obvious that Charles Bloe trainers are practising clinicians. This is shown through their case study focused approach to training"
Paramedic (April 2018)
"Superb course. Best I have ever done. Would recommend to all"
ECG (December 2017)
“I just wanted to take a moment to say that the 2-day demystifying ECG course was absolutely fantastic. It was clear from the start of the course that the trainer had an immense knowledge and experience of the subject, however from the start of the course and throughout its duration it was delivered in a very step by step and supportive manner. The skill, experience and knowledge level of those attending the course was very varied but the trainer managed to provide an all inclusive training session that involved every delegate providing lots of opportunity to reinforce learning and discuss aspects of the course.
Although many people had attended ECG courses previous to this session everyone I spoke to felt they learnt a lot from the course and commented on how good the training had been.”
ECG Demystified attendee (August 2017)
"Fantastic course, delivered with excellent knowledge and adapted to suit the audience. I now understand loads more now and feel much more confident with my ECG understanding. Thank you”
