Training and Development

We recognize that for most service users the most important people in our organisation are the care workers with whom service users will have regular contact. We take great care in recruiting, training and supervising our staff.

Our staff have a wide range of qualifications and are positively encouraged to undertake additional and specialist training as appropriate. All care staff are required to complete Common Induction Standards training, mandatory training and regular updates and to achieve QCF Level 2 in Care.

Our rolling programme of in-house training includes:

  • Health & Safety
  • Moving & Handling
  • Fire Safety
  • Food Hygiene
  • Emergency First Aid
  • POVA
  • Equality & Diversity
  • Infection Control
  • Lone Working
  • SoVA
  • COSHH
  • Medication
  • Dementia

We are committed to continued professional development and ensure all staff have up-to-date training.
