Training Centre

Havencare provides and resources a wide range of training programmes which are made available to staff. Working towards this nationally recognised standard of excellence has created a positive learning culture within our organisation and as a result we have an excellent record in developing our staff team.

We are an accredited centre with the following Awarding Organisations; OCR, and Royal Society for Public Health. Through these partnerships we are able to offer a diverse range of qualification opportunities within a number of vocational areas including;

  • Health and Social Care
  • Team Leading and Management
  • Education and Training
  • Business and Administration
  • Personal Development
  • Functional Skills in English, Mathematics and ICT

We also offer a number of Apprenticeship options throughout different services in Cornwall, Devon, Plymouth and Torbay. You can choose to access Health and Social Care, Business and Administration, Team Leading or Management. To obtain further details please contact Head Office.

In addition to the qualifications listed above, and as part of our core learning and development package we are also able to offer the following;

  • Health and Safety
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Food Safety in Catering
  • First Aid (either Emergency First Aid at Work or First Aid at Work)
  • Managing Actual and Potential Aggression (MAPA)
  • Understanding Autism
  • Introduction to Safeguarding
  • Mental Health Awareness

We ensure that the correct training is provided to all staff, based on their needs, and the needs of the services they work in. All staff are able to access specialist external training, where necessary, to further develop their skills and confidence in supporting people with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

Our belief is that by enabling our staff to complete professional training, this in turn boosts their skills, morale, motivation and career development and ultimately feeds into the ever improving quality of our services. Each year our training calendar is developed as a result of evaluation of previous training, changes to national awards and as a response to government led objectives and targets (for example CQC regulations, Skills for Care, Supporting People Standards (QAF) & Domiciliary Care National Minimum Standards).

As well as providing training for our staff, Havencare also offers training to our service users. In response to service user consultation, we are able to offer a number of our core training courses including First Aid, Food Safety, Health and Safety and Recruitment and Selection. These are provided to build the skills and confidence of our service users and to encourage them to get involved in all aspects of service provision and recruitment.

Finally, a number of our programmes are available for external customers, so if you see something that may be of interest to you, then please do contact us for further information. Details of forthcoming opportunities will be highlighted on our main page.
