Immunisation And Vaccination

Vaccination and immunisation training is essential in helping to prevent disease. Vaccinations allow people to build up immunisation to certain diseases such as the flu. They do this by training the immune system to identify and combat specific pathogens using antibodies. All of our training courses are all delivered by practicing, specialist educators so you can be sure that  training content is up to date and in line with best practice. 

Here at Guardian Angels Training, we offer a wide variety of immunisation and vaccination training courses to suit the varying needs of care providers. Our vaccination and immunisation courses include:

This delivery model allows us to deliver fully bespoke training content on our vaccination and immunisation courses, perfectly suited to the specific needs of your organisation.

We are also able to provide the necessary competency proformas required to ensure safe and evidenced-based clinical practice following completion of our Vaccination and Immunisation training courses. This will then allow the Registered Provider to ensure mandatory competency assessments are completed within the workplace by a nominated mentor/supervisor. If you need further advice regarding competency assessments or if you would like one of our Registered Nurse Trainers to provide onsite competency assessments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
