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.

NAPA is delighted to offer eLearning:

There are many advantages to studying via eLearning:

  • Due to its convenience and flexibility, the courses are available from anywhere and at any time
  • Everyone, who are part time students or are working full time, can take advantage of web-based learning
  • Web-based learning promotes active and independent learning
  • As you have access to the net 24×7, you can train yourself anytime and from anywhere also
  • It is a very convenient and flexible option; above all, you don’t have to depend on anyone for anything
  • Not only can you train yourself on a day to day basis, but also on weekends or whenever you have the free time to. There is no hard and fast rule.
