Training & CPD

With training from Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, you’ll learn how to pick up on early psychological, behavioural and physical signs of eating disorders, how to approach someone you’re concerned about, and what you can do to help them into the treatment they need.

Our four skills-based workshops are led by clinicians with first-hand experience of working with people with eating disorders. The courses are designed to suit the needs of many different people who may come across someone with an eating disorder in their personal or professional life.

To learn more about each of our training courses, or to book them, choose from the options below. You can also search current conference information here.


Due to the ongoing complex situation regarding coronavirus, our courses are currently on hold until October.

We know that our courses are incredibly important and valuable to our attendees and it is our aim to rearrange the events affected by this – we hope that by October schools will have reopened, the risk will be lower, and we will be clear on how to best run our training courses in light of coronavirus. Further communications will be sent to those affected as soon as we have more information. Anyone currently booked on one of these courses will be able to have their deposit refunded.

Beat’s online groups and Helpline are operating as normal and are available to any carers who were attending these events who may need support, as well as anyone affected by eating disorders.
