In-house sleep workshop for your staff
Sleep practitioner training for your staff within your Trust or organisation
If you have a team of community health professionals you wish to train, Millpond can come to you. This is the most cost-effective way of training a number of staff and where appropriate, other teams in your locality could be invited to attend spreading the overall costs.
Previously we have been commissioned to train staff in numerous NHS Trusts and organisations across the UK and Ireland, many returning to train additional staff, including Wales, the Home Counties, the South East, the South West, the Midlands and most London Health Trusts. Workshop feedback delegates attending our training sessions are health visitors, community nursery nurses, family support workers, children’s centre staff and school nurses.
All of our sessions are evaluated and the feedback we have received has been extremely positive with 100% of participants saying they would have welcomed the session as part of their health visitor training.
Should you wish to discuss your particular staff training needs please contact us 0208 444 0040.

“I already accept referrals for sleep difficulties, developing programmes for adolescents and want to apply these very helpful and useful techniques in my clinic. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, thank you. Really clear, interesting and positive workshop”
Dr Patrick Loughran, Senior Clinic Psychologist, Ireland
“I recently attended the Millpond sleep practitioner workshop and it was one of the best study days that I have ever attended. It has had a huge impact on my clinical practice, as I now have a better understanding of sleep cycles, preventing inappropriate sleep association and how to reset body clocks and feel more confident in supporting parents with children with sleep problems.”
Nicki Murray, Health Visitor
“I have never seen so many excellent evaluations of a study day. The Millpond Workshop was the most practical and useful training I have attended since I qualified as a health visitor, 27 years ago! In my opinion practical sleep sessions should be a core component of health visitor training. I would highly recommend the Millpond Training to anyone who works with children and families, as sleep is so important to everyone’s physical and emotional well-being.”
“I found the sleep practitioner study day extremely useful and have supported families since using strategies learnt on the day. I have also been able to share knowledge with my colleagues, which they have found useful too. The day also reinforced advice I was already giving – always good to know it is still current and relevant. The presenters were lively and held my interest throughout the day.” Sue Parker Community Nursery Nurse
