Care certificates

Are you aware of the requirement for regulated services to provide clear evidence that care workers have demonstrated knowledge, skills and behaviours to show they are suitably trained?

We have updated and redesigned our training sessions to cover the knowledge elements of the Care Certificate which can be accessed via open courses. This is a flexible package which we hope will meet your individual needs.

The Care Certificate Induction course will be delivered by Hoople's vocational team and will run on 24-26 May 2016 at a cost of £200.00 plus VAT per delegate. Delegates will need to attend all three days to comply with the requirement.

The course will soon be available to book on CPD Online but if you'd like to reserve your place before then, please contact Caroline Reading on 01432 260076 or email caroline.reading@hoopleltd.co.uk

Please contact us if you require more information about the content of the course and standards covered.

Introducing paperless portfolios...

We are excited to be introducing paperless portfolios which will be launched in May 2016. As well as doing our bit for the environment, e-Portfolios will provide you and your learners with the following benefits:

  • No more large ring binders to carry with the risk of them getting lost!
  • Total transparency for you the employer, the learner and us - the training provider - of what’s been done and what’s to do
  • Available 24/7 from any web enabled device including via an app
  • Reminders for reviews and appointments
  • Easier to submit alternative formats of evidence such as video, audio, and witness statements
 Please contact Hoople training 01432 383500 for more information.

Putting the Digni-tree to good use

As mentioned in previous newsletters, our Digni-tree was first developed to celebrate Dignity Action Day last month. However, we were keen to use it to enhance the learning experience for students on our courses. This month, learners on our Adult Safeguarding course used the Digni-tree to prompt discussion as they read the leaves and shared their thoughts on what dignity in care means to them.
