We would like to welcome six of the latest additions to the Inchwater Home Care Dover team who have successfully completed their induction.
Pictured with Care Manager Maddie Watts who led the course are caregivers have just completed their three-day induction training. This is a comprehensive course that trains and tests their knowledge and skills in key areas such as Health and Safety, Medication, First Aid, Fire Safety and Food Hygiene. Complimenting this were in-depth discussions and Q and A sessions of issues surrounding care at home, such as dignity, safeguarding, personalisation and social inclusion – all hugely important when delivering high quality care services to older people. Inchwater is an Approved Centre for NCFE Level 2 courses and, as such, is externally moderated and verified.
Maddie says “Caregivers are offered training at all levels of their career, with Basic and Advanced caregiver awards available as well as specialised dementia, palliative and intellectual disability courses for those desiring or needing to focus their learning. Continuing Professional Development is seen as best practice for any social care worker and is a requirement for all members of staff at our Dover and Canterbury offices”.
Paul Watts, manager of the Dover office and Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development qualified trainer, says “…training is not just about receiving information, it should be about contributing your own knowledge too. These caregivers have set the standard very high and have added their experience and knowledge to the sessions which has resulted in a very interesting and enjoyable course!”.
