Employers, we are offering an introduction to social care training programme!

Employers, we want to help support you.

We are now offering an Introduction to social care.

In response to concerns about the availability of workers as a result of Covid-19, we are offering an introduction to social care training programme to allow people to gain knowledge and skills in the social care sector. We are running a FREE three-day training course for people interested in working in social care.

About the training

The three-day training programme, will take place on-line and a workbook will also be completed.

The training will cover the essentials needed to start work in social care, including:

  • Group A safeguarding
  • Roles and responsibilities of social care workers
  • Equality, diversity and equity
  • Communication
  • Health and safety including PEE and infection control
  • Duty of care
  • Code of Professional Practice
  • Person-centred approach
  • Resilience and wellbeing

The training must be followed up by extra support and training by you for anyone you employ. You may be able to get some help from your local authority for this such as further moving and positioning training.


Accessing the training

Potential recruits are being asked to register their interest on the WeCare Wales jobs portal. They will then be contacted by a member of our team who will gather further information.

If you have a newly appointed member of staff i.e. waiting to start or within six weeks of the set training dates and are having difficulties training them as a result of Covid-19, we may be able to offer them a place on the course. Please contact us at contact@wecare.wales to discuss.

Payment for training

If you recruit from this pool of trained people you need to consider how you may be able to recompense them for their training time once they have been employed for a period of time as they will not have been paid for attending.

We want to know how well our training works. If one of our trainees has secured a job with you, we will contact you a month after they have started to see how well the training has helped them be ‘job ready’.
