WayPoint Training

Waypoint Work With People Who Work With People!

Waypoint Training has a proven track record for high quality vocational training that promotes excellence in working with a range of vulnerable groups, including drug and alcohol users and people with multiple and complex needs. We offer training because it helps to further our aim of improving the well-being of these groups and to promote excellence in people who work with these groups.

Waypoint is unique in that it is embedded into a charity that works with substance misuse and complex needs and therefore our trainers have daily contact with service users and the staff who work with them. We can see the impact of skilled interventions on behaviour change and also watch people in recovery grow and develop from taking part in the training we offer them.

This unique perspective brings our training to life with anecdotes and examples drawn from our extensive work in the field.

The Waypoint Way

  • We pride ourselves in developing innovative solutions for our customers’ needs, including opportunities for blended learning.
  • We are an approved centre for both City and Guilds and Certa Awarding Bodies and can offer a range of qualifications, accredited training and quality assured non-accredited training.
  • As part of a charity, we use activity evidence to develop course content and reinvest any profits back into supporting vulnerable groups.
  • Over the last 15 years we have trained thousands of people, from Local Authorities to NHS departments, from national charities to small community groups.
