Training for Health Care Professionals

Virtue Health Care Education

 

 Virtue Health Care Education Limited is a team of dynamic educators who are passionate about training, specialising in Mental Health and Addiction. Our vision is to empower and encourage the community and health services workforce to develop person-centred care insights, skills, attitudes, and ways of thinking through education and training. We believe through education we can all better promote well-being in our communities, whānau’s, and lives

 

DYNAMIC & ENGAGING

Our workshops utilise two trainers to facilitate the learning. We believe having two trainers creates a more dynamic and energetic environment that helps maintain interest and engagement. By having two trainers we can also be more responsive to the class, by checking for understanding and ensuring that we are catering for all levels of learners.

 

ADULT LEARNING PRINCIPALS

Workshops are developed with adult learning principals in mind such as being goal and relevancy oriented and practical. Motivation is another aspect of adult learning that we encourage through social relationships and interaction. Participants come from different organisations to learn together creating a collegial learning environment.

 

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

As adult learners, participants have accumulated a foundation of life and work experiences and knowledge. We believe new knowledge is created through the transformation of this experience. We do this by providing participants with activities and discussions that

  • Build on experiences
  • Promote reflection
  • Help them reconceptualise
  • Help them to experiment
 

PERSON-CENTRED FOCUS

Throughout workshops all content and concepts are brought back to the perspective of the person being supported, respecting that every person has a unique history, strengths, interests, and needs and has the right to self-determination in how to go about living his/her own life.
