Why Telos?

telosOur name ‘Telos’ is derived from the Greek word for ‘fulfilment’, or ‘accomplishment’. As an aim for all our work with service users, the term ‘Telos’ underpins our mission to provide training and development based on our core values of a person-centered approach which enables service users to lead as full a life as possible while respecting their values and spiritual needs.

Our Values

Equal Opportunities and Diversity

Telos recognises that skills are often developed in multi-cultural care environments and that our training and development programmes need to represent these aspects of care practice.

A person–centered approach

In a care environment increasingly influenced by the need for a strong values and ethical base our courses offer participants adequate opportunities to cover issues such as the values and ethical base of care practice as well as tools and techniques in developing practice based on a person-centered approach.

Spiritual dimension to care practice

Spirituality and the way in which spiritual needs are met and addressed form an increasingly important focus in care practice. Where required our programmes will incorporate a focus on spirituality issues either as part of the ‘core’ programme or as a ‘stand-alone’ programme.

Adding value to training and development

Some of the ways in which Telos Training add value to your training programmes include:

Learning Together

Our programmes reflect the reality of partnership working in a complex environment. Social Workers, Care Managers, Nurses, Medical Staff as well as other professionals work much more effectively together when they have been involved in a learning programme together. We particularly value the involvement of learners from Private and Voluntary (Third Sector) care settings.

Working across the Health and Social Care workforce

Support Workers and similar staff have a key role in play in working alongside professional colleagues and in enhancing standards of care. Telos will focus on providing values-based training for groups such as Support, Time and Recovery Workers through using accessible and readily understandable learning materials.

Tools and Techniques

Each of our sessions covers a practical ‘kitbag’ of tools and techniques on the particular subject developed both from the programme itself as well as from the direct experience of participants themselves.

Organisational Development for smaller organisations

Over the last year Telos has expanded to providing support in organisational development, such as development of strategic objectives, for smaller organisations such as an Almshouse Charity and a Town Council in Kent.
