Child Growth Foundation Training Courses

Whatever else happens to the NHS, it is certain that the child measurement programmes are here to stay [and might even be extended!]. Are your staff ready for this and are they fully trained?. The new Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health/Department of Health school-age growth charts emphasise the need “ for everyone who measures a child, plots or interprets charts “ to be suitably trained. Any of the Child Growth Foundation courses below deliver what is required.

Training CoursesEach full-day/half-day course allows sufficient hands-on time for trainees to be proficient in taking heights and weights and working with the pre-school UK-WHO charts, school age charts or BMI charts.

The 2011/12 NCMP figures published in December confirmed how disastrous the UK’s obesity epidemic has become. They make the early recognition of unhealthy overweight more urgent than ever. The courses offer guidance about the frequency of measurement required to achieve this.
