The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) is designed to protect and empower people who may lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions about their care and treatment. It applies to people aged 16 and over.

Our mental capacity act and Does courses are run in an interactive student-centred style, with all assurances given to create a safe learning environment. Please note all our courses are tailored free of charge to your requirements so may vary slightly from the stated aims and outcomes and are run in-house and virtually.

NNTC can create a bespoke E-Learning package for your organisation. This means no more paying for individual licenses for all your employees. Please contact Jackie for details and pricing.
