Georgie is one of our Service Managers in Dorset. She left the NHS in 2013 where she worked as an adult nurse. After a period in domiciliary care she came to Advance, joining as a Service Manager in October 2018.
Georgie has recently completed a trainer course on how to support people with Epilepsy (Level 3 Award Epilepsy Awareness Trainer). She already had a Level 3 Award in Education and Training certificate under her belt so is qualified to deliver a variety of training to other members of staff in the local area where she works.
Instead of sending staff members out to external training, Georgie can now deliver it to them locally instead, which is much more economical. This is also particularly helpful as there are a number of customers in the Dorset, Poole, Bournemouth and Ferndown area with Epilepsy.
