Training & Staff Support

We take training and the ongoing support of our care professionals very seriously.

All Lavender support staff undertake mandatory training during their probation period. 

Within their first twelve weeks, each carer is required to pass units from Redcrier training, which include: safeguarding, basic life support, moving and handling, mental capacity act, infection control, food hygiene, medication and be familiar with the home carer’s manual.  All staff are required to update their training and knowledge every three years.

Lavender's in-house Trainer and Clinical Advisor, Linda, is responsible for ensuring that all staff are up to date with their mandatory trainings and remain compliant and competent in their duties. 

Staff are encouraged to further their knowledge by studying for QCF/RQF diploma levels 2 and 3 in Health & Social Care and also through distance learning NCFE courses, which are regularly made available to all members of staff.
