When firms invest in their staff with training, they increase the skills of the team and keep the staff in the business which improves quality and can save money.

What health and social care e-learning courses are available?

There are so many skills required in the care sector. It can seem that each worker needs to wear multiple hats through each shift in order to give the right level of care at all times. Those in the industry need to focus on safeguarding for both adults and children as well as practical training for health and safety and fire risk management.

Care teams will also need specific job knowledge, from safe handling of medicines to nutrition and hydration. As well as this, organisations need to consider personal development. From improving their standard of patient-centred care to developing a career in health and social care, there are many aspects that need to be taken into consideration.
