VTS modules

These modules have been designed specifically to offer a blended approach to trainees. For each module there is a taught element and an opportunity for interaction through Q&As.

There will also be associated activities to complete including AKT style questions, a CSA case (written by our PD team) and a focussed learning activity.

The full 13 week programme is available at a subsidised price to whole VTS schemes. If you are a TPD, please get in touch with us at VTS@red-whale.co.uk
