We provide a robust induction training programme for all of our carers based on the standards jointly set by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health in the Care Certificate (hyperlink to page - http://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/Standards/Care-Certificate/Care-Certificate.aspx)
Our carers undertake hands-on training courses in moving and handling, work-based shadowing as well as specialist placements at the Keech Hospice (Palliative & End of Life care).
We are committed to having more Dementia Champions among our workforce to support our commitment to our local Dementia Action Alliance
Alongside training and workforce development programmes, we are also committed to paying our carers the National Living Wage as a minimum.
Our views on investing in our people is simply this - “high-performing companies strive to create a great place for great people to do great work”- Marilyn C. Nelson
