Any successfully appointed person will undergo a fully funded 2-week face to face training course, coving in-depth subjects such as Safeguarding, Health and Safety, First Aid, Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma, Reporting & Recoding & our own BILD certificated Minimising Physical Intervention training programme. These courses are designed to provide our people with some foundation knowledge to best support in starting a career with us. All of our courses are designed and reviewed by sector professionals and delivered by our internal managers to allow individuals to expand their own knowledge and confidence to go on and grow within their roles.
As part of the initial training course, staff also undergo a 4-day minimising physical intervention course, called Safe and Sound. All our Safe and Sound trainers have been approved by the BILD (British Institute of Learning Disabilities) ACT against the Restrain Reduction Network (RRN) Standards to deliver approved certificated curriculum.
Following this initial training we ensure all people continue to receive the appropriate training and development opportunities to maintain the highest standards of childcare practice which responds to legislative and best practice frameworks, as well as individual aspirations and career goals.
