Training will be developed and delivered around the individual needs of the service user and the care assistant.
It is Cheriton Homecare’s policy to provide ongoing training opportunities for all our active care assistants, in order that they may carry out their duties effectively and develop their potential
Care assistants are required to attend mandatory training courses that are arranged with them. Mandatory training and update training can also be provided subject to contract and in accordance with company policy. Details will be provided by Cheriton Homecare Limited. Care assistants will not be paid for the time spent training.
Additional training will be assigned to a Care assistant if a service user has a specialised or specific requirement or need.
All Care Assistants will be required to complete a comprehensive induction with us and will not work unsupervised with a service user until they and their manager are confident that they can do so.
If care assistants agree to attend/undertake training and they fail to attend, the cost of the training will be claimed from them, either as a request for payment by Cheriton Homecare Ltd from them or as a deduction from any invoice presented by them to Cheriton Homecare.
If on line training courses allocated by Cheriton Homecare are either not started or completed within time frames agreed and Cheriton Homecare is unable to recover the cost of these courses, the same will apply.
It is a requirement that all CherIton Homecare Care Assistant’s statutory training, including Moving and Handling, Food Hygiene, Medication and Safeguarding, is up to date and valid before Cheriton Homecare can place them with service users.
