Our Induction Week aims to give new or existing staff a comprehensive introduction to care. Over 5 training days, we go into all elements of the care role, to give individuals the knowledge and tools they need to offer high quality care.
The Induction is developed around Skills for Care’s ‘Care Certificate’, which is an agreed set of fifteen standards that define the knowledge, skills and behaviours expected of people working in the health and social care sector.
(Please note that we only deliver the theoretical elements of the Care Certificate; most employers will conduct an effective workplace assessment to assess the competence of their workers before signing off the Care Certificate.)
