Courses from our Dementia Training Team and Veterans' Project

You can now take part in our training by video using the free Zoom app.  All that’s needed is a laptop / computer / tablet / smartphone and an internet connection. We do the rest! We've tested the approach and participants so far have given positive feedback about both the content and opportunities for interaction.  If you have any questions about how the training will work please don't hesitate to email us: dementiatraining@agescotland.org.uk

To find out more and book please click on the links below.  We do not charge for our open courses.  If you would like bespoke training for a staff and (or) volunteer group of 4 or more people in your organisation we may be able to arrange training specifically for you: please contact the Dementia Training Team at dementiatraining@agescotland.org.uk or the Veterans' Project at veteransproject@agescotland.org.uk. There may be a charge for bespoke dementia and the workplace courses.
