We have two moving and handling trainers and a qualified teacher/trainer and an allocated training room with equipment for the moving and handling training.
Shadow training follows the Induction training week. This is where you attend the care calls you will be taking on permanently with an experienced carer or supervisor. The amount of shadow training required will vary person to person, but we always ensure you are confident and happy before you start and will liaise with you during your training.
We feel it is very important for staff to feel supported, confident and happy in their job roles and so the office, supervisors and management strive to fulfill and promote this at all times.
