Staff Training and Induction Programme

We understand that at the heart of our organisation is our team members; they are the ones providing our clients with outstanding care and support. We therefore place a paramount importance on ensuring that every single member of our team has a full induction and training programme. We are strongly committed to ensuring that our team are happy, motivated and supported in their role which enables them to deliver the best service to our clients.

As a benchmark across the care and support team, every staff member has to complete the Care Certificate.  Team members are also encouraged to gain a QCF qualification, starting with a Level 2 in Health & Social Care, they can then progress to Level 3 right up  to a management Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care.

Both financially and logistically as a company we invest heavily in our workforce to ensure that for both clients and staff, the safety and well being of either party is never compromised.

Our mandatory induction programme is delivered by our Registered Care Manager and Managing Director to ensure that all new members of our team embrace our company values and quality of care and support. After the induction programme, each new member of the team shadows one of their colleagues for a minimum of two weeks, they are regularly supervised and observed delivering care or support in the homes of our clients, before they are fully signed off to work alone.  Your permission will be gained in an advance of any observation in your home taking place.
