There are lots of opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge and progress in your career at Exemplar Health Care, if you wish.

When you join us, you’ll have access to a wide range of online learning modules through our eLearning platform, and we offer a variety of training programmes, qualifications and apprenticeships.

We're proud that four of our in-house training programmes have been certified by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles - they are our ABC of Caring, People Management Skills, Talent Management and Leadership and Management programmes. 

Comprehensive induction programme

Everyone who works with Exemplar Health Care receives a corporate welcome induction which includes learning about the company and our values, and completing Mandatory and Statutory Training.

The first two days involves training about topics such as first aid, moving and assisting and safeguarding. On the third and fourth days of induction, colleagues complete Exemplar Positive Behavioural Support (EPBS) training with our in-house Behaviour Support Team, which has been certificated by Bild ACT. If you’re working in a role that isn’t a care or nursing role, you’ll attend your home or department on your third day instead.

After the corporate welcome induction, you'll do a role-specific induction in your new workplace and meet your buddy who'll support you in your first few weeks. New colleagues in care roles will complete the Care Certificate as part of their induction (if you’re new to care).

Performance Development Reviews

All colleagues will have a Performance Development Review every year to discuss progress, set objectives and develop a personal development plan. This is a great opportunity to share feedback with your Manager and talk about your career aspirations.
