To ensure staff within the County Council maintain their occupational competency and can meet the requirement for training in line with legislation and the Essential Standards of Safety and Care, we offer a comprehensive mandatory training week. This covers a variety of areas and provides staff with an opportunity to increase and update their occupational competence.
This 3 day programme includes:
- Dignity in Care
- Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS)
- Nutrition and Hydration
- The Safe Handling and Administration of Medicines
- Safeguarding Level 1
