Our training courses are an excellent starting point for understanding eating disorders and the problems that surround them. Comprehensive yet accessible, the courses require no former knowledge of eating disorders, with tailored courses for employers, schools and parents, and primary care providers.
Beat have been involved in the eating disorder community for over 25 years, and our courses have been developed using this wealth of experience. All courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service, and delivered by experienced trainers.
Beat’s Training Courses
An accessible one-day or half-day training package developed by Beat for a wide variety of professionals. Avaialable to organisations and employers at a location of your convenience, and applicable to fields such as health care, education, social work, the public sector and retail.
A set of three short training sessions created for school staff, students and parents. The course is great for raising awareness of eating disorders within all parts of the education system, emphasising the importance of early intervention.
A more in-depth and advanced training course, our training for primary care professionals was developed to tackle the misdiagnosis and lack of awareness of eating disorders in the medical community, promoting best practice and effective referral. CCGs and NHS trusts can commission their own events by contacting us.
The trainer made the subject come alive. The day was positively absorbing. It was lively, well presented and I felt I gained enormously from it. I also have a better understanding of the theory behind eating disorders and will use this knowledge in my clinical practice.
Shira Herman, Student Welfare Officer, JFS School
Useful and informative training. Trainer was knowledgable and interesting to listen to. I feel like I can implement aspects of the training to broaden my knowledge whilst working with young people who are experiencing eating disorders.
Katie Johnson, Personal Advisor
An excellent overview of eating disorders by charismatic and engaging presenter. The theory was back up by interesting real life case studies. I left feeling more confident about where to start when dealing with people with eating disorders
