As one of the UK’s leading training providers Hands on Babies specialises in delivering high quality training in the disciplines of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga.
Hands on Babies have been operating for over 12 years and have worked with a wide range of individuals, Local Authorities, NHS Trusts and National Charities and are able to offer Face To Face or Online Training to suit the needs of you or your organisation.
Over the years our experience of training people from all sorts of different professional backgrounds has enabled us to develop an unrivalled curriculum for both our Baby Massage and Baby Yoga training courses. This combination of professionalism, experience and a passion for sharing the wonderful skill of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga, enables us to offer an outstanding training experience which will exceed all of your expectations.
1, Unrivalled Accreditations and Endorsement
Independent Third Party Verification, Scrutiny and Approval of us, our curriculum and our training standards has always been of paramount importance to Hands on Babies, both in terms of the Health and Complementary Therapy sectors.
In 2012 Hands on Babies was one of the first organisations to receive accreditation for both our Baby Massage and Baby Yoga courses from the world renowned Royal College of Midwives. We also have approval from numerous Complementary Therapy Accrediting Bodies both in the UK and overseas.
But what sets us apart from other providers is that we are currently the only training provider in the UK that can offer the NEW ‘Gold Standard’ of approval for our training with our OfQual Regulated Qualifications.
Often referred to as the ‘exam watchdog’ OfQual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) is the Government Department that regulates & accredits British Examination Boards offering GCSE’s and A Level exams in England and it is their role to maintain standards and confidence in qualifications. Hands on Babies are delighted to announce the launch of its OfQual Regulated (RQF) Level 2 Awards and Certificates in what will come to be the NEW Gold Standard of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga qualification.
All Hands on Babies course attendees can now extend their Hands on Babies Accreditation to the ‘Gold’ standard of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga training with our unique Government Approved Regulated Qualifications
Hands on Babies are also the ONLY training provider in the UK to have Certified Status for its courses by CPD UK, the leading independent Continuing Professional Development accreditation institution.
Hands on Babies Certified Status gives you the reassurance that CPD UK has stringently assessed its courses and its training methods and quality controls and has recognised Hands on Babies as providing the highest quality accredited training and events. Hands on Babies training courses are therefore suitable for the CPD policies of professional bodies, health trusts, local authorities and infant related organisations.
2, Our Tried and Tested Curriculum
As a professional training organisation our curriculum has been developed around the specific needs of our students and has been honed over many years through real student participation and feedback.
Through its perfect balance of theory and practical training it will teach you everything you need to know about Baby Massage and Baby Yoga.
But it goes further than that – As a professional training provider we also provide you with everything that you need to run really effective parent facing sessions including full session & class plans (so you won’t need to spend hours planning your lessons) and parent facing hands-outs that you can self-brand if you wish.
3, Choice and Flexibility
Hands on Babies offers lots of options in how you train and various levels of accreditation to suit your individual needs. Whether your preference is Face To Face Training, Online Training or a combination of both, whether you choose the Hands on Babies Accreditation or opt to extend our course to the OfQual Regulated option, with Hands on Babies the choice is yours.
The speed at which you work through the process from enrolling to accreditation is also up to you. Some students choose to enrol and begin their studies immediately, and then work through the curriculum and assessment methods quickly. With commitment these students can get to the point of accreditation in a matter of weeks.
Others take their time and work through the process over a longer time period, dipping in and out of the Online Academy as and when they have a few moments or hours to further progress their training – Again the choice is yours...
4, Exceptional Value Added Extras
