The main role of a Care Worker is to provide support to a person in need of care, improving their lives by attending to their specific needs, and assisting them with their daily tasks.

Care Workers may find themselves working with children, the elderly, and people with disabilities or learning difficulties. However, key duties will usually include:

  • Working with clients, their families and other professionals to identify their particular needs, and develop a care plan
  • Providing personal care to clients depending on these needs (assisting them with washing/feeding/dressing etc.)
  • Aiding a client with other every day or physical tasks, such as shopping, cooking or studying
  • Providing emotional support to clients and their families
  • Keeping the client comfortable and at ease at all times

What training do I need to be a carer?

With so many vulnerable people in society, from young children to disabled adults, carers play such an important role in many families around the UK. Although being a caring is a lot of hard work and dedication,  it is immensely rewarding. So, if you’re looking to become a carer, whether you’re leaving school or looking for a change, you’ll need training and hopefully, the article will help you make the right decisions before you set off on your exciting new journey.

Is a career in caring right for me?

With many different sectors within social care to choose from and the prospect of helping people of all ages and abilities, caring can sound very appealing. However, the truth is that caring is not for everyone and before even considering training you need to ask yourself if caring is the right job for you. If you’re not sure, the best option is to try voluntary work. There are plenty of websites to help you with this, such as the NCVO and Do-It websites. Your local library could be worth visiting too. Aside from that, it gives you plenty of experience and a taste of what it’s like. Of course, you’ll have to be CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checked first.

Training Opportunities for Social Care Work

Perhaps you’re absolutely certain that a career in caring is for you. Let’s take a look at the training you’ll need to become a carer. Having a working knowledge of the social welfare system is key but many social care jobs don’t require you to have a formal qualification in this subject. Reading up on the topic is a good idea but in most cases, you’ll pick it up on the job.

Jobs will often give you the opportunity to undergo courses whilst you work allowing you attend college or university on day release. There are part-time foundation and induction course available as well as none-exam-based National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) that cover subjects like Care and Management or Health and Social Care. Degrees are available for high-level qualifications too.

The Care Certificate

Whilst formal qualifications are not essential, one thing that you are required to undertake is the Care Certificate. This is a set of standards that you must adhere to if you are to be a social care worker. These requirements are set out by Skills for Care and Health Education England. We offer a five-day Care Certificate training course which covers all 15 standards of the care certificate.

Certification

As mentioned before, formal qualifications are not essential in becoming a carer, however, they do help with job prospects and future progression. They also help you to carry out your role more efficiently and provide higher quality care. Here at Caring for Care, we offer a wide range of care courses that help you meet CQC standards. These include:

  • Anaemia Awareness
  • Autism Awareness
  • Basic Life Support
  • Breakaway Training
  • Catheter Care Training
  • Dementia Awareness
  • Diabetes Awareness
  • Dignity In Care
  • Effective Communication
  • Effective Record Keeping Training
  • Epilepsy Awareness
  • Epilepsy Medication Training
  • Equality & Diversity Awareness
  • Fire Safety Awareness
  • Infection Control Level 1
  • Learning Disability Awareness

  • Safeguarding Vulnerable Children
  • Safer Handling of Medication
  • Safer People Moving & Handling 1 Day
  • Safer People Moving & Handling 2 Day
  • Safer People Moving & Handling Refresher
  • Stroke Awareness

Some Hospitals, Trusts, Nursing agencies and Domiciliary care organisations insist on Mandatory training that is aligned with the Skills for Care programme. Some Hospitals and organisations require PRICE and MAPPA Training. We also deliver this. Secure Healthcare Training can train other Agency staff, individual candidates or clients with a group demand.

We can provide the premises and full training or we can provide just the trainers where appropriate. We really are flexible to support our users as much as possible. We know training and the seriousness of it needing to be done correctly and ensure you the user have the necessary knowledge to undertake your role competently.

We don’t just support healthcare establishments and individuals, we can support any business with Mandatory training such as First Aid, Manual Handling and Fire Safety. Please call us for more information.

Registering with us shall require you to provide two professional references. One of which is to be either your current or most recent employer. It is also necessary for an enhanced DBS disclosure to be carried out.

Applicants must also have at least six months care experience in the past 2 years.

We look forward to welcoming you soon ?

What is the DBS?

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps healthcare employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable candidates from working with vulnerable groups, including children and elderly . It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

For those posts that involve a greater degree of contact with children or vulnerable adults, ie the type of work that involves regularly caring for, supervising, training or being in sole charge of such people, candidates will require an enhanced DBS check.

If I have a criminal conviction, can I still be employed?

This will depend on whether your offence is considered to make you unsuitable to have access to patients. We conduct a greater level of checks on staff who work with certain patient groups, such as children and vulnerable adults. We will however consider a range of factors before making our decision to appoint -the nature of the offence -the age at which it was committed – its relevance to the post in question – whether the applicant has a pattern of offending behaviour – whether the applicants circumstances have changed since the offending behaviour – the circumstances surrounding the offence and the explanation(s) offered by the convicted individual.

Why does Secure Healthcare Solutions ask for an Enhanced DBS Check ?

We do this to protect our client and patients. In doing this, we balance the need to prevent unsuitable people from working in sensitive posts, against the threat of discrimination against rehabilitated ex-offenders. In addition to the information included in the Standard Check, an Enhanced DBS Check includes a consultation of the new lists of individuals considered unsuitable to work with children and vulnerable adults. The police will also check for any additional information held in their files that might be relevant to the position being applied for. It is then up to the police to decide what extra information is added to the report.

What is the definition of a vulnerable adult?

Whilst the term ‘vulnerable’ is no longer in use, this is defined as an adult person aged 18 or over who is in receipt of specific types of services, namely:

  • healthcare for adults provided by, or under the direction or supervision of a regulated healthcare professional
  • personal care for adults
  • social work – provision by a social care worker of social work which is required in connection with any health services or social services
  • assistance with an adult’s cash, bills or shopping because of their age, illness or disability arranged via a third party
  • assisting in the conduct of an adult’s own affairs under a formal appointment
  • conveying adults for reasons of age, illness or disability to, from, or between places, where they receive healthcare, personal care or social work arranged via a third party.

Can Secure Healthcare Solutions Help with the Costs of DBS?

If you are a professional healthcare assistant, support worker with a minimum of 12 months experience , a registered nurse looking for work and motivated to do well in the Care industry , then secure healthcare solutions would be more than happy to take care of all the costs of your full enhanced DBS check, usually worth just under £70 mark.
