Training and Development
As health and care industry professionals, we understand how critical it is to ensure we only supply well trained care workers. Here is how we support this:
Regardless of whether experienced or inexperienced in care, all new care workers are given a full and thorough induction, thereby identifying learning styles to ensure we use the correct programmes to support learning. If the new worker has previous care work experience, we undertake skills for care self assessment to identify any knowledge gaps. We also recheck the individual is safe in their moving and handling techniques by practically assessing these and undertaking theoretical knowledge checks.
We believe learning in care never stops and continually refresh our existing workers' training. Following their probationary period care workers are supported to complete more formal qualifications such as QCF's in Health and Social Care.
All our offices have their own meeting and training rooms, fully equipped with example products such as person protective equipment, continence products, medication dispensers, profile beds, hoists, slings and various mobility, moving and handling equipment. We also have close links with local colleges and identify support when required with record keeping, literacy and numeracy.
