Everyone who joins the Exemplar staff family has to take part in a seven day training course held at our central office in Rotherham. Everyone learns a variety of skills including Moving and Handling, Food hygiene and Health and Safety.
Many of our staff are surprised by how in depth and useful the training they received during their first week and a half is. Some of the more experienced care staff are also shocked to find that the majority of their training is delivered by one member of staff.
This was the view of the registered nurses on the induction last week. She was so impressed with the training provided that she wrote one of training team Avril Watson a letter praising her work.
She said when she first heard about the course she was worried that it would be a waste of her time as she was already an experienced registered nurse. “However I could not have been more wrong. I found the training engaging from the start.”
She went to write she had attended similar inductions in the past and she was impressed by the level of attention given to those who had not worked in care before.”
“I was pleasantly surprised that the different levels of knowledge and skill in the room was acknowledged and used to enhance training.”
Our award winning training has helped many people start their career in care as well enhancing those who have been in the industry for years.
Her final comment read: “ Most of all, I was impressed by how the training reflects the values of the company and gave me the confidence that I am joining a great organisation that places person centred support at the heart of what we do. I can’t wait to start.”
