Training

Trained, competent staff are essential to improving the wellbeing and quality of life of the people who use your services.

Training can be offered in a wide range of subjects including the Care Certificate, leadership, safeguarding, dementia care, learning disability support and health and safety. Given the busy nature of care, training is available in a number of different ways making it very flexible. This includes on- or off-site, via DVD, e-learning, on tablets and smart phones, through external providers, face-to-face and more. As a well-trained workforce is crucial to the delivery of safe, effective care, CMM brings you its Resource Finder on care sector training.

BVS Training Ltd is the leading provider of award-winning, video-based training courses for the care sector. Our resources and our customer service reflect how we endeavour to maintain this position and our standards.

Our work with care managers and trainers from a range of different experience levels ensures that the products meet training needs in the workplace, continue to be relevant, easy to use and flexible, and contain the right level of detail.

Videos are available to purchase on DVD, accompanied by supporting materials including lesson plans, hand-outs, trainer guides, a quiz and certificate templates. Our videos are also available on our online portal where a multiple-choice quiz, automatic resets and other functions ensure your training provision is largely self-administering.

Company Profile

Skills for Care helps to create a better-led, skilled and valued adult social care workforce. We provide practical tools and support to help adult social care organisations in England recruit, develop and lead their workforce. We work with employers and related services to ensure dignity and respect are at the heart of service delivery. Our support is from entry level right through to those in senior leadership and management roles.

We’ve developed a selection of free materials to help you implement the Care Certificate in your workplace. These include:

  • A workbook that covers what learners need to know and understand for each standard in the Care Certificate.
  • A guidance document.
  • The framework assessor document.
  • A self-assessment tool.
  • A mapping document that sets out how the Care Certificate maps across to other resources that are used within the sector.

The resources and more information can be found at www.skillsforcare.org.uk/carecertificate.

We run excellent leadership and management learning programmes, including:

  • The Moving Up programme for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) social care managers and leaders.
  • The Top Leaders programme aimed at leaders within the most senior positions in health and social care.
  • The New Directors programme, designed in partnership with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services.
  • The National Graduate Management Training Scheme where we match specifically selected graduates with host organisations for a 12 month placement.

More information on all of our programmes can be found at www.skillsforcare.co.uk/programmes.

To help employers find high quality learning and development providers we’ve introduced our Endorsement Framework. Care providers can search our online directory to find learning providers endorsed by us and their courses at www.skillsforcare.org.uk/endorsement. We also have local area teams across the country who can signpost you to relevant tools and the availability of funding for learning and development. Visit www.skillsforcare.org.uk/areas.

Company Profile

Specialising in the Care Certificate and core competence subjects, our business exists to provide you with the support and resources you need to evidence safety to practice and prepare for Care Quality Commission inspections.

Our system will provide you with the data you need to efficiently and effectively manage workforce development. We ensure the learning your staff undertake is relevant and transferable into the workplace, and that it impacts positively on their practice and morale for the benefit of the people receiving care and support.

Our customers use our resources to suit their business needs. The assessments can be used during the interview process, prior to induction, post induction and as refreshers. Our ‘know – understand – do’ methodology values the prior knowledge that staff bring to your organisation, allowing you to evidence and record knowledge and tailor learning and development to meet clearly identified learning needs, rather than ‘sheep dipping’ staff through expensive, generic training programmes. Assessments are supported by eLearning and curated links to other resources, including your organisation’s policies and procedures.

We have supported organisations to make considerable time and cost savings and to achieve step change in their learning and development outcomes.

With over 1 million assessments recorded in our unique assessment solution, our role is to ensure your setting receives maximum value and impact from your training and development activities. The system is modular, with configurable assessments and continuous competence recording. It can easily be connected to existing in-house learning management systems or it can stand alone.

We are the leading provider of continuous competence recording in social care with 10 years of operational expertise and more than 100 years of direct health and social care sector experience within our professional team. We are proud to have achieved various awards including a Skills for Care Accolade for our eLearning club.
