Last week we wrote about our Prevention Management Violence and Aggression course and showed you a few photos of course participants taking part. Well we are going to give it another mention mainly because it is the second course we have ran in the space of a week, this shows our commitment and dedication in training we give to all of our care support workers.
Here are a few photos of care support workers learning about the latest restraint techniques on the course.
We recently let you know that all care support workers providing care in homes have to be officially registered by April 2020. This measure has been brought in by the Welsh Government in order to increase professionalism in the care sector.
First Minster of Wales Mark Drakeford is the man who has been behind introducing these new measures, he goes on to say.
“The domiciliary care workforce deserves the recognition, investment in training and support from their employers, registration will help deliver this and ensure home care workers have the right training that teaches the skills necessary to carry out quality social care in Wales.”
ProCare Nursing is already on course to register all of its care support workers by 2020, not only that but we are also committed to ensuring that all home care workers are trained to QCF Level 2 in health and social care standard. We carry out all training in-house to ensure quality control of any care course we undertake. A lot of training companies outsource their training to free-lancers, the problem with this is you cannot over see the training ensuring it is adequately carried out.
If carers are not adequately trained when they go into the field of care they could well find care support challenging, not only that you put the service user at risk and poor care quality is likely. If a care support worker find the job of caring difficult then they are likely to quit because they haven’t received the adequate training they need to be equipped to carry out quality care.
There is a stigma in the care sector that care support jobs are very difficult and care workers leave the field of care in short spaces of time. Working hours and pay rates are a factor however we believe that care support work is a perfect career move for those who are compassionate and kind, the role as a care support worker can be very fulfilling for those with a caring nature.
We don’t like to use the term care “jobs”, we like to think that our care support workers can progressively move up the ladder in the care sector going on to have bright vibrant careers, we offer training qualifications that can lead to other areas of care work, at our in-house training facility we teach QCF qualifications in health and social care leading up to level 5, these qualification certificates can lead to other career opportunities in the health and social care sector over time.
So lets recap, ProCare Nursing is a believer in training our care support workers to high standards in health and social care, we are dedicated in providing quality training and committed in providing carers to our service users that deliver only the highest standard of care.
