So, what can you expect from Care Worker training at Abbots Care?
Care Worker induction training
We’ve earned a reputation for amazing Care Worker training and development, and it’s our goal to help aspiring Care Workers realise their full potential.
When you register to train with Abbots Care, you’ll receive complete Care Worker induction training, delivered by our highly qualified trainers, who’ll work closely with you to identify and build on your strengths, meaning you’ll always feel confident and in-control as you perform your daily duties.
Ranging from theoretical support (so you can master the basics) to practical learning, based on real-life scenarios, Care Worker training with Abbots Care will provide you with everything you’ll need to make a difference to people’s lives.
What to expect from Your Care Worker training
Our initial Care Worker training takes one week, and you’ll be sent to complete shadow shifts alongside an experienced Care Worker, who’ll explain everything to you.
During this time you’ll:
- Learn the theory behind proving quality care
- Undertake practical exercises, including first aid and personal care
- Receive specialist dementia care training
- Learn about our qualifications programmes, to support your ongoing development.
- Train alongside your new colleagues, getting the chance to know them
If you need any additional support during your Care Worker training, we’ll meet with you to discuss how we can help. We’re able to support with any language or learning difficulties you may have to ensure you’ll achieve your Care Certificate.
Once your supervisor agrees that you’re ready to provide support alone, you’ll be signed off and begin working with service users, offering them the support and companionship they need.
What’s more, updated training is conducted regularly, in accordance with CQC and government guidelines, so you’ll always be in the know.
Our Care Worker training courses
Please contact our recruitment team to book onto our next session: 0330 094 5511 or contact us. Currently, our induction is conducted online online (via Zoom). We’re here to support our Care Workers with setting up Zoom and the online functions necessary to complete the training with us.
The Care Certificate
The Care Certificate is awarded upon successful completion of your Care Worker training, and states that you meet the standard for working with adults in social care.
Involving assessments, feedback, guidance, and learning, our approach to the Care Certificate means you’ll have everything you need to complete the course and get started on your journey in care.
On average, the Care Certificate takes 12 weeks to complete, including being signed off as competent.
By the end of the course, you’ll feel confident in your duties and be able to offer compassionate, person-centred care.
Care Assistant training for everyone
At Abbots Care, we strive to make careers in care accessible to everyone, so you don’t need existing qualifications to get started – just enthusiasm for supporting others and a willingness to learn.
Our experienced team of Care Workers will offer guidance and support on every step of your journey, ensuring you’ll have all the tools you need to complete your training. (And then some!)
Further Care Worker training and qualifications
We want our Care Workers to grow, and we’ll encourage and support you in finding and completing any further qualifications that you think would be useful to your personal and professional development.
So, if there’s a specific area of care you’d like to explore, we’ll work with you to offer tailored support, allowing you to accomplish your career goals.
