Frequently asked questions from new employees

How long will my training take?

Our training runs daily from 10.00 - 14.00. To complete your training it will take between 7 and 9 days and in some cases longer. The reason for the huge variance is down to the individual we are training, we all learn at different paces and, as an organisation we have to be sure that you have all the knowledge and skills, to be able to undertake your role in a safe and confident manor.

Once my training is complete, what happens next?

Once training has been completed, presuming all your other checks have come back fine (references & DBS), you will undertake 'Shadowing' this is where you pair up with an experienced worker, you will go on client visits with them to witness the care provided in practice, you will be asked to undertake tasks at the visits, these will usually be smaller tasks, while you build knowledge and skills. There isn't a definitive amount of hours for shadowing. As a rough rule it will be a minimum of 8 hours, you won't be expected to work alone until we and yourself feel you are safe to do so.
