Consultus Four-day induction course
This comprehensive course provides new carers with the skills and understanding required to ensure you are well prepared for your caring role and equipped to meet the wide-ranging needs of clients.
We have taken a blended approach to our induction course which involves a combination of online and face to face training:
Part 1: you will complete two online topics
Part 2: you will attend four days of face to face training at our Training Centre in Tonbridge, Kent
The format of the four-day induction training will be:
Day 1: Sessions on your caring role, medication, communication and recording and reporting, infection control and health and safety.
Day 2: Sessions on basic life support, duty of care, safeguarding adults, equality, diversity and inclusion, dementia, mental health and learning disabilities and the Mental Capacity Act.
Day 3: Moving and positioning, including demonstration and practice of safer moving and handling techniques, and safe use of a range of moving and positioning equipment, including a mobile and ceiling hoist.
Day 4: Sessions on food hygiene, the importance of nutrition and hydration, pressure area care and a person-centred approach to care. The afternoon session focuses on all aspects of personal care, including toileting, how to support clients with incontinence, catheters and colostomy or ileostomy.
