The Training Initiative

The Training Initiative

The Training Initiative is a forward-thinking training company which is passionate about raising training standards in the Care Sector. We recognise that staff recruitment, retention and training can be a time consuming and costly process. We can help.

Our team of qualified and expert trainers deliver a range of regulated qualifications and CPD sessions which support and develop staff in their roles in the care industry. We tailor our delivery to suit the needs of your business and work with you to ensure everything we do underpins and adds value to what you do. We work with NCFE, CACHE and TQUK to offer a comprehensive range of courses and to give you assurances over the quality of our training.

Many of the qualifications we deliver are eligible for funding through the Workforce Development Fund. This funding stream means your training costs can be significantly reduced and you can focus on developing and retaining your workforce.

The Training Initiative Care Worker Induction- WDF FUNDING AVAILABLE

Delivered over 12 weeks through a blend of classroom based and distance learning, our tailor-made care worker induction prepares your carers for a career in care. Assessed through a combination of written work, practical demonstrations and field observations we look to ensure all those who pass the course have achieved the National Minimum Training Standards for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England.

  • Level 2 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care (QCF)
  • Level 2 Award in Moving People Safely (QCF)
  • Level 2 Award in CPR and AED (QCF)
  • Control and administration of Medication (CPD)

At present we are piloting with Pro-vida Care the delivery of the QCF Level 2 Award in Preparing to Work in Health and Social Care (with additional qualifications such as Level 2 in CPR and AED, Level 1’s in Health and Safety and Fire Safety added in) as our induction instead of the Care Certificate. Whilst the Care Certificate is certainly an improvement on previous practices we are still concerned that it is self-delivered and self-assessed within companies and therefore may not be consistently delivered and assessed to a suitable standard.
