Our culture is built on core values that we passionately believe in and are at the heart of everything we do. It’s what makes us different. A big part of our care worker training promotes our core values. Joining our team means you share the same values: quality, compassion, integrity, respect, recognition and innovation and will demonstrate them in all aspects of your work for Alina Homecare.
Develop your skills with us
Great quality care starts with great quality care training
We want you to be a real success! We believe that if you deliver care and support, you should be recognised and treated as the highly skilled professional you are. To reinforce this we’ve established our Alina Homecare Academy that provides high-quality training to help you do your job and develop your career.
From our experience, we’ve discovered we learn more by doing it together, that’s why all our training is delivered face-to-face with our trainers, either in person or virtually. This sets apart from other companies that rely heavily on e-learning.
Our trainers hold teaching qualifications which means they know the best ways to help people learn. They have experience of working in the Health & Social Care sector and some have previously held senior specialist jobs such as Learning Disability Nurse, Community Nurse, Operational Manager and University Lecturer to name a few. We also work alongside external care worker training providers to offer QCF qualifications, including MBA level.
Your induction training is personalised and dependent on any previous experience you may already have supporting others and in Health & Social Care.
You’ll receive up to 30 hours of high-quality, face-to-face virtual or classroom-based training to ensure that you have the skills and knowledge to do your job. Once completed, you’ll shadow an experienced member of the team, to ensure you’re confident and competent in your newly learnt abilities. Throughout, you’ll also receive regular feedback supervisions to report back on tasks and knowledge, to evaluate any gaps.
As a support worker for our Disability Support Team, you’ll benefit from additional hours of specialist training and as a care worker for our Care at Home team, you’ll get the opportunity to take additional specialist training depending on the needs of your clients.
We also offer a wide range of specialist and refresher courses, to ensure we’re able to provide the best care and support for our clients’ needs and to enable you to progress your career.
At Alina Homecare we care about our teams, which is why we have an employee rewards platform – a system that offers amazing discounts, vouchers and exclusive offers just for you. Whether it’s money off your next food shop or a voucher for the cinema, there are plenty of deals to choose from.
Your wellbeing is incredibly important to us which is why we’ve recently launched the Wellbeing Centre for our teams – a platform where expert-led content, guides you through classes about physical, mental and financial wellbeing.
Our Academy has been nominated for a LaingBuisson prize! LaingBuisson is a renowned social care market data specialist and hosts national awards every year. This is the first time we’ve entered and we’ve already reached the finals!
Why so many people enjoy their training...
Led by our well-experienced trainers, practical tasks will be set and guidance given throughout training to equip individuals with the necessary skillsets to handle all circumstances.

Develop yourself and your career
Take your career a step further with an RQF. The Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) is a system for managing qualifications regulated by Ofqual. The system is based on level and size. The higher the qualification, the greater the complexity and difficulty of the skills and knowledge associated with the qualification. There are 8 levels in total, although the most common accredited courses we offer are:
The ‘size’ of the qualification is based on the estimated amount of time (weeks to years) it will take to study, complete and be assessed for the qualification. There is no set deadline for completing qualifications so you can finish at your own pace.
We support you and your career to make life easier.
