What does it mean to be a carer? Better yet, what does it mean to be a great carer? Join us in an interactive day of discussing the qualities, skills and core values that will help your services excel.
"Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person" -anon.
Having the right skills, tools and understanding is essential for anyone working in care and since this is such a diverse topic we want to tailor this course specific to the needs of your team. This course is a brilliant addition to your induction processes and has elements of self-esteem and team building to increase staff morale. You'll find a list of potential content suggestions below, which will be discussed with you in advance, and adjusted to capture your specific objectives.
