Features and testimonials from our students


Welcome to Rosedale Training

We are passionate about sharing excellence and well-being in the community, breaking down taboos and encouraging positive conversations around mental health, suicide, death, dying and bereavement.  Rosedale Training, based in South Norfolk, offers specialist courses to give individuals, employers and charities a deeper understanding of the issues around bereavement and mental health and how to offer vital help.
It is believed that at least a quarter of people in the UK are affected by a mental health condition at some point in their lives.  Key people within businesses and organisations can now be given the ability to spot the signs among members of their team so that they can be guided towards early, appropriate support.
Our training can benefit you, your colleagues, friends and family members and it’s part of our duty of care as employers and helps us build healthy and happy communities.
Please see below for further specialist courses in bereavement and the funeral services profession available from Rosedale Training.

What our clients say about us

Diploma in Funeral Directing course

“Thank you to my tutor Anne, along with Emily, for your time, help and great support throughout my Diploma in Funeral Directing (Direct Entry Route) course. The online Zoom lessons were well put together with extra insight from guest speakers and the lessons were conducted extremely well in a friendly, interactive manner. Both Anne and Emily are very knowledgeable and I would recommend anyone with experience to complete this course – I should have done it years ago! Thank you.”
Andrew Thornalley, Thornalley Funeral Services

“Fantastic training, very professional. Delivered well, the personal stories were very powerful”

PC 334 Oliver Button, Norfolk Constabulary

“A really informative and interactive session pitched at just the right level. The two trainers have a really relaxed and calm way of imparting their knowledge. There was plenty of checking on the participants welfare throughout the session, and the support information sent after the training was invaluable. I feel prepared should I be called upon to deliver bereavement support during this unprecedented time.”

Funeral Services Training

With regulation of the funeral profession just around the corner, there has never been a better time to invest in professional qualifications.  Outdated attitudes in some parts of the profession where practices have not been updated for decades are no longer good enough. Continuing professional development is essential to keep you up to date with the latest laws, regulations and industry practices.

Rosedale Training offers a range of courses up to Diploma level qualifications whether you are already employed in the funeral profession or are considering it as a career.  Anne Beckett-Allen and Emily Houghton are registered tutors with the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) that sets out the high quality of service bereaved families should expect from a funeral director upholding professional standards.

Investment in training provides the opportunity for employees to think about improvements and eliminating mistakes and should be embedded within the culture of the company. Training and the pursuit of excellence through learning enables companies to improve profitability by modifying their employees’ skills and attitudes and by increasing their job satisfaction and commitment to the company.
