Meet the Team

The APTCOO team represents education, health and care, private and voluntary sector. Our investment in training and development is exemplary. Each year we support staff and volunteers within their chosen fields of work to develop their skills, qualifications and areas of personal development. We work together with local colleges and universities providing high quality placements. Our environment lends itself to research and development, this is recognised and rewarded with qualified therapists spending time with APTCOO to carry out their University placement. Their experience, findings and recommendations for change are transferred into high quality reports shared with the Board and contributing to the future design, business planning of APTCOO.
