Cookie Consent by Training for PA carers - Norfolk County Council

Training for personal assistant carers

We offer training for anyone currently working as a personal assistant (PA) carer, or who wants to work as one. The training is provided through Norfolk County Council Adult Learning.

This training is free if you earn less than £17,004 a year and have lived in the UK, EU or EEA for three years before the start of the course.

You may also be eligible for funding if you don't meet this criteria but do support someone who has their care needs met through a direct payment.

The full Adult Learning offer will be available shortly. 

In the meantime, the following courses are available to book and may be of interest to anyone working as or wanting to be a personal assistant. 

Courses are either online or classroom-based courses:

  • Volunteering in Adult Care

  • Health and Social Care Level 2 
  • Mental Health Awareness – Level 2
  • Household Budgeting Skills
  • Healthy Eating/Cookery Skills
