ARC Training

At TCS, the safety of our clients, their families, and our healthcare professionals is our number one priority. That’s why, when you join our team of nurses and support workers you will receive expert training prior to your first shift to ensure you have the right skills and knowledge to safely support both children and adults with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health conditions in the community.

Through our partnership with B-Inspired, we are proud to have been awarded a certificate of affiliation to use a method of physical intervention known as ARC (Access, Respond, Care) as accredited by the British Institute of Learning Disabilities and Restraint Reduction Network.

What is ARC training?

ARC training provides you with the support and reassurance required to protect yourself, our clients, and their families safely and appropriately in the community. Through a mixture of presentations and interactive group work set out over a maximum of 3.5 days, you will learn a range of de-escalation strategies, personal protection, and safe holding techniques, designed and focused on maintaining dignity and respect for the client.

All of our healthcare professionals within our learning disability, autism and mental health service receive ARC entry-level 1 training delivered by our expert in-house trainers. 

The benefits of ARC training

ARC training places a strong emphasis on Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) which promotes personal choice, inclusion, participation, equality and opportunity for our clients. Through this method of training, our nurses and support workers are given the right knowledge and skills to effectively support and empower clients to lead fulfilled lives in the community; leading to a reduction in behaviours of concern and restrictive practices.
