Clinical Courses

We really value our client’s opinion of us….


My Own Mentor delivers courses that are relevant, fit for purpose and have ensured more confidence in the team and therefore better care to our children. They have been delivering excellent training on Safe Handling, Management and Administration of Medication, Safe Enteral Feeding and Safe Administration of Buccal Midazolam over the past 3 1/2 years, providing a positive approach by a very knowledgeable trainer.

I highly recommend My Own Mentor Ltd who ensure understanding across the group of learners, are very flexible and accommodating when scheduling training and approachable at any time if queries arise.”

Kiki Schoenberg, Registered Manager, Barnardos


“I am the Training Manager for a group of 10 Care Homes with some 350 staff, specialising in Dementia Care. Whilst I personally deliver all the mandatory courses I had a need for a training provider who could fill in the gaps with medical training. Of course I looked at many providers but Jon and his company stood out, interested in my specific needs and happy to tailor his quotation to them. My Own Mentor Ltd now provides four courses at each of our homes and I am receiving glowing feedback from our staff on both the quality and delivery of the courses. The courses are cost effective for us and I look forward to a long and continued relationship with My Own Mentor Ltd- indeed we are already looking at some advanced courses for our home subject champions”
