In Home Care Training
We are focused on building a strong work force based on leadership and skill. We are constantly improving and updating our training facilities. We have found there is a lack of ‘quality’ local care training providers therefore we made the decision to start our own training school.
We are currently undertaking all the latest health and social care courses as ‘train the trainer.’ This training allows us to further train and develop our own workforce keeping us up to-date with all the latest changes. All our courses are CQC (Care Quality Commission) accredited and our Management Team are responsible for the vast majority of our training.
We are very excited to announce the development of our all new training centre; completion of which will be announced in 2016. We will have the one and only full training facility in the area, including a training room that has all the usual aids and appliances including a shower, hospital bed and all mobility aids such as hoists, slide sheets and even a banana board!
At the moment all training is provided using a mixture of online, in-house and via third party accredited training providers.
Our care workers undergo a comprehensive check on their training when joining IHC, after which they must re fresh their training either at *1/2/3 yearly intervals.
Care workers new to care and those that have no ‘actual’ experience working in care must undergo a 12 week training schedule. Once qualified and signed off as competent the certificate they are awarded is called the ‘Care Certificate.’ This Care Certificate is a designed method to evidence competency in all the basic aspects of care related work. We do, however, encourage our care workers to continue with further training, including in some of the more specialist fields.
