It is essential that all Care Assistants / Support Workers are fully compliant before starting work with us, and remain compliant throughout their employment. Out internal Compliance Department ensure that all staff meet the legal requirements and then store all of this information in individual personnel files. The requirements that our staff must meet are as follows:
Right to work in the UK
Valid ID documents
DBS (registered to the online update service)
2 references from previous employers
All mandatory training certificates (Manual Handling must be a practical certificate)
Prior to the commencement of any shift, we will send the client a copy of the Care Assistant / Support Workers profile, detailing their DBS number and expiry date and all training dates. Copies of this information can be made available on request, for any subsequent CQC inspections.
Our Compliance Department work with our Training Manager to arrange weekly training courses to ensure staff training is always up-to-date.
