Develop your skills with us

Great quality care starts with great quality care training

We want you to be a real success! Our Academy 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 us 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. This enables the Academy team to train based on their experience and offer support, advice and guidance on a personal level, along with real life practical examples. This will give you confidence to provide great care, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

Our courses have been designed by your trainers to help you learn new subjects and easily retain information that you will need in your job roles.

We also work alongside external Care Worker training providers to offer QCF qualifications, including MBA level.

Induction Training

Your induction training is personalised to you 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.

After your induction training, you’ll be teamed up with an experienced colleague to ‘shadow’ and help you get started. They’ll support you, answer your questions and ensure you’re able to put your Academy training into practice.

You’ll have regular supervision time to give and receive feedback, ask questions, and chat about other training needs you may have. You’ll put your new knowledge into practice immediately and discuss the learnings of each course with your supervisor.

We’re proud of our Academy – it’s here to train our teams and support them at every step of their development.

Develop yourself and your career

Take your career a step further with an Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). The RQF is a national 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 eight levels in total, although the most common accredited courses we offer are:

Level 2
Level 3
Level 5

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.
