Train with Tacpac and become a skilled practitioner in Communicating through Touch and Music.

Day 1 Essential

The perfect introduction to your Tacpac development

This training provides all Tacpackers with the fundamental understanding and skills necessary for the effective delivery of Tacpac. It is an essential training both for experienced practitioners and for those who are starting out from scratch.

During this day you will learn how to get the very most out of what Tacpac can do. You will have hands-on practice and learn how it feels to be a Tacpac receiver. You will also learn how to integrate Tacpac into any part of the curriculum or care plan. And you will gain CPD points.

We look at all the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of Tacpac; combining theory and practice into a fun, interactive and stimulating day of training.
