Starting Out – The NAPA Induction Course for Activity Providers
The purpose of this course is to explain the activity provider role so that everyone can appreciate the important contribution activity can make to the life of a care setting – whether through planned activities such as facilitating a group, or less obvious activities, such as chatting with residents. This is an ideal course for a new activity provider, but also a refresher or as part of the induction of all staff so they understand the importance of activity provision to the individuals in your care.
This is course is free for current NAPA members
