Red Balloon Training was set up in 2008 to specialise in high quality bespoke training for health and social care professionals.

Initially offering only the flagship course of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, clients were so impressed they asked for additional courses to be written. Red Balloon Training now delivers a range of courses.

Training sessions by Red Balloon Training are delivered with passion and creativity. They are interactive, engaging and enjoyable. They equip participants with the skills they need to transform lives.

The sessions take into account different learning styles and have aspects that are auditory, visual and kinaesthetic. The courses contain a combination of slides, videos, interactive exercises and case studies. Participants are encouraged to make use of the training pack that is provided to help with their learning. The booklet encourages reflective practice.

95% participants rated the course as excellent and many are excited to undertake other courses delivered by Red Balloon Training.
