Nightingale Training Academy

"Our newly founded Nightingale Training Academy is something we are all extremely proud of ", says Director Chris Long. Our aim is to recruit, train and continuously improve the knowledge of our care & support staff, who we are already extremely proud of, through providing in-depth and comprehensive training in Health & Social Care. Our wish is for all of our staff to be extremely proud to be working for Nightingale Homecare, resulting from being recognised for their knowledge & ability to deliver effective person-centred care.

This will be achieved through continuing to provide not only induction training in care but improved & additional training opportunities, to further increase the skills & knowledge of our care staff. Through widening the skill set of our staff within Health & Social Care, including providing specific training in specialist modules, our staff will take even further pride in wearing the Nightingale Homecare Purple Uniforms, due to the well -deserved respect and recognition resulting from the good reputation of Nightingale Homecare in each locality. Our specialist trainers have developed a Gold Standard Social Care Training Framework, which initially provides Induction Training to Skills for Care & CQC Requirements. Thereafter the Nightingale Training Academy continues to provide excellent ongoing training to ensure that all of our staff have the skills, knowledge & expertise to meet the many & varied challenges they face during their daily visits. Our specialist personalised in-house training is just one of the resounding reasons we are recognised as the Provider & Employer of Choice in the localities which we support. We work to the highest standards of person-centred home care, with all of our team members developing, understanding, delivering and championing these Gold Standards as they increase their own personal skill-set and progress their Careers in Social Care to become Care Leaders and innovators of the future.
