Dignity Action Day 2016 - Update

You might recall from the January newsletter that we planned to celebrate Dignity Action Day by creating a 'Digni-tree' in our Churchill Gardens Training Centre. We asked Herefordshire's care organisations to answer the question...

"What do you do to support staff in promoting dignity
in your workplace / care service?"

We were delighted with the response we received and we're proud to be displaying the tree for all of our learners and visitors to see. 

Level 5 Adult Management / Residential Management

Following recognition for the current and future workforce development within Health and Social Care, the Level 5 Adult Management / Residential Management qualifications are now being fully funded by the government.

What does this mean for your organisation?
Managers or staff aspiring to go into a management/senior carer position can now undertake the level 5 diploma free of charge. For more information, please contact Sharon Hempton-Smith on 01432 260451.

Introducing our new assessor...

Gemma Davies joined Hoople's Vocational Assessors team in January after eight years of clinical experience within the Wye Valley Trust, working both in the hospital and community settings.

Gemma is working towards achieving the TA/QA qualification and hopes to be fully qualified within six months as a Vocational Assessor for Health and Social Care.

Developments at Churchill Gardens

Improvement works at our Training Centre are on-going. To keep you up-to-date, here are a few things that have been achieved:
  • New fire doors have been installed and painted.
  • Outside work has started to improve fire escape routes and a patio area for sitting outside in the summer
  • Clearance of stud walling in Cedar Room to allow in natural light
Still to come:
  • Fencing work around the training centre
  • Additional car parking space will be added
