Mandatory training for Elite Livein Carers, regardless of experience, covers all of CQC's 5 Lines of Enquiry
At Elite Livein Care, we understand that everyone learns at different levels and speeds. We also know that the courses of training required for experienced and less experienced carers will, by necessity, be different.
Mandatory training for Elite Livein Carers, regardless of experience, covers all of CQC's 5 Key Lines of Enquiry and provides the carer with a foundation to further their knowledge with on-the-job experience.
Our training plan improves the knowledge of our carers and results in improvement of care delivery
For inexperienced carers, completion of The Care Certificate is sufficient to ensure safe, effective practice within the regulatory framework in which Elite Livein Care operates. Before any of our carers are enrolled on to The Care Certificate, they must complete the Elite induction programme and adopt our high standards.
For experienced carers, we only accept training that is accredited to the standards we feel are appropriate for the quality of service we pride ourselves on. If our recruiter feels the carer needs specific training, or that any training previously completed was not adequate, we would not allow that carer into the field until their skillset was updated.
If the experienced carer or their line manager feels further training is required in specific areas, the Elite training program allows for this.
Our specialist training modules may include (among others):
- Complex care training (e.g. cough assist, tracheostomy etc.)
- Mandatory training to focus on specific subjects the carer feels unprepared for
- Client specific training (e.g. complex moving and handling)
- Customer service training
- Train the trainer
Elite's training plan improves the overall knowledge of our carers, which results in higher quality care-giving. Equally importantly, it provides our carers with the opportunity to learn, progress and flourish in their careers.
