Initially I provided staff training for care staff mainly in residential
and nursing homes within the North West. I became an internal verifier
in 1992 and worked on a part-time basis for Associated Care Training
(formerly North West Nursing Homes Association).
Before moving to South Cheshire in 1996 I verified for 19 residential
care and nursing homes and had nearly one hundred candidates under my
supervision. As a qualified City and Guilds vocational and skills assessor
(D32, D33 and D34 units in 1994) I can undertake work based assessor
and verifiers functions.
I have provided a range of training and development opportunities for staff on a variety of subjects.
Staff training options
The following training sessions are most commonly commissioned:
- To individual carers, especially in a residential setting. These are mainly related to activites and rehabilitation.
- To individuals, groups of carers or activities organisers within a residential setting to set up or develop diversional programmes.
- To provide an insight into common medical conditions and dysfunctions eg strokes, head injuries, Parkinson's Disease and mental confusion.
- To help with understanding the principles and practice of rehabilitation.
