As a centre for award winning training, the DESMOND Programme now has a number of training days available, including our DESMOND 1-day Core training which looks at the philosophy, theories and behaviours that underpin all of our modules. This training is the first step in Educator training for registered HCPs and is also available for anyone looking to find out more about the DESMOND Programme and what makes it stand apart from other diabetes education programmes or for those looking to develop their own education programme or just for general interest.

If you are a site interested in training Educators to deliver the DESMOND Newly Diagnosed & Foundation module curriculums in Punjabi, Gujarat, Urdu or Bengali then this is the course for you, please note Educators must already have already attended the DESMOND Core training as well as the DESMOND Newly Diagnosed & Foundation module training day. Please contact the National DESMOND Office directly for dates.
We also support bespoke courses for health organisations who wish to train 10 or more Educators in any of our modules. These will be arranged locally with the person who commissions this service. This is ideal when a new site takes up the opportunity to host the DESMOND Programme, and wishes to have a cohort of Educators trained to help establish one or more DESMOND modules across their organisation.
