Training and development are very important to us at Quantum Care. We ensure our staff have the skills and confidence to make the most of their role and to provide the quality of service we pride ourselves on.
We believe that for our staff to really enjoy their role and to consequently provide the best possible care to our residents, it’s essential that they have the necessary skills, confidence and support - that’s why we take our training and support programme very seriously.
As soon as our staff begin working at Quantum Care, they are provided with a comprehensive induction programme, which equips them with all the underpinning skills and knowledge they need to do their job well. We then have an on-going programme of training and development to help them keep their skills up to date, as well as providing them with a real opportunity to develop a successful career in the social care sector.
We actively encourage all staff to undertake relevant qualifications and develop their skills, and have our own in-house assessment centre using workplace based assessors. We also offer a wide range of other vocational qualifications which are accessed via partnerships with external assessment centres. These range from first level care skills to management development training.
All staff working with people who live with dementia are provided with relevant, ongoing training, which includes externally accredited qualifications.
