All of the staff at Kelly Park Limited follow a detailed training programme. This equips them with the essential skills in order to deliver a high quality care service.
Kelly Park Limited works with Skills for Care and Durham Care Academy to develop an apprenticeship course that will provide its staff with a Level 2 qualification.
The apprenticeship framework in health and social care will allow staff to follow a flexible course of study. This in turn will allow them to choose from different pathways, including clinical support, blood donor support and medical assistance.
Once staff have completed the framework, the carers will be able to further their training with a Level 3 qualification, which is mandatory for care workers who administer medication.
