Staff Commitment

 

We are committed to the principles and values of a recognised quality standard. We achieved and have maintained the Investor in People award (IIP) since 1999.

 

Our staff work as a dedicated and well-trained team. We maintain high staffing levels, essential in order for us to achieve our aim and objectives. Our extensive staff training and development plan ensures that all our staff receive the training and development required for them to perform their role in a professional and effective way. This ensures that they work towards and are committed to the philosophy of the Home and gives them a firm foundation for a career in care. Accreditation takes the form of external and internal assessment, successful students receive NVQ qualifications. To support this we have an in-house modular program of induction and training, of which we are very proud.

 

We have a dedicated in-house training advisor and assessor, responsible for designing and implementing our excellent induction program.
