Future Courses

Over the next 18 months, the AHC will be running a series of training courses that are linked in with the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF). All NHS communicators should now be working towards one of four KSF levels for the public relations and marketing dimension of the KSF based on their job role. All the AHC courses will be geared towards a specific level of the KSF so course participants can use attendance as evidence to demonstrate that they are working at, or exceeding, a particular KSF level.

We are currently in the process of organising trainers, arranging dates and booking venues and will post full details as soon as possible. As with all AHC courses, they will be specifically tailored for healthcare communicators, run by trainers with healthcare experience and costs will be kept as low as possible.

Please take a look at our planned courses below and if you would like to register your interest for any of these, please contact Kate Baldwin, AHC Administrator on: 01525 222155 or via email at katherine.baldwin@virgin.net Please also let Kate know if you have any ideas for further courses.
