< Back to the Generic Service Intervention: Dementia Competency Framework

The Dementia Training Centre provides high quality training about dementia, care and aspects of old age mental health. 

In partnership with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, The Institute of Psychiatry and Kings College London this resource is an online training resource which is free to access (you will need to sign up to create a free account).

These are modular programmes ranging from detailed introduction to dementia, to psychological interventions to managing challenging behaviour. They are easy to use and each module takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

3 e-learning courses are available:

  • Working with People with Non-cognitive Symptoms of Dementia
