Hoople first organisation in Herefordshire to be endorsed as Skills for Care recognised provider

We are pleased to announce that Hoople Training and Education recently attained Skills for Care's Recognised Provider status. But what does this mean for our customers?

The Skills for Care Endorsement Framework outlines a set of quality assurance criteria designed to ensure that businesses seeking training can be confident that the provider:
  • supports excellence
  • has good processes in place
  • delivers courses that are relevant and fit for purpose
  • can prove that the people who have attended their training courses are now delivering better care as a result
Hoople is the first organisation in Herefordshire to receive such accreditation.

Skills for Care's Recognised Provider endorsement is a mark of quality, given only to organisations that provide the best training in the adult social care sector.

Interested to find out more? Skills for Care have created a short video which outlines their Endorsement Framework that can be viewed here.


Could your business provide employment for an apprentice?

With many excellent candidates on our books, keen to start the next chapter in their careers this autumn, would you consider taking on an apprentice?

We've had some excellent applications from this year's cohort of school and college leavers for apprenticeships in all areas: Health and Social Care; Business Administration; Childcare; Customer Service and Dental Nursing and are now looking for employers to support them.

In addition to having taken on a bright apprentice, your organisation will benefit from the high-quality and effective training they'll receive with Hoople. Our Training and Education service will take care of the paperwork leaving you free to take care of your business.

If you're interested in employing an apprentice in any of these fields, please contact Dawn Haymonds or Stacie Franklyn for further information.
