Dovehaven Training Academy prides itself in ensuring all staff are given training to not only exceed minimum standards but to develop confidence and give a wider understanding of both mandatory and non-mandatory training. Dovehaven Training Academy believes training is not just putting a tick in a box or meeting compliance it is about enabling each resident to receive the highest possible standard of care.
Each Dovehaven Home is unique and as such our Dovehaven Training Academy allows us to develop and deliver bespoke face to face training to meet each homes individual needs. This also allows us to differentiate to each individual staff members needs to guarantee inclusivity and value diversity.
All staff are encouraged to further their knowledge with continued professional development and are supported with a wide array of externally sourced courses including NVQ’s, Fire Marshall and Venepuncture. We truly value on going training and have a significant number of staff who have made significant career progressions within our homes. As well as this we are beginning to develop in house courses to train staff to become trainers themselves which will mean even more flexibility and more focused training to each homes needs.
As the Dovehaven family of homes grows and develops so does the Dovehaven Training Academy, we have the ability to become an accredited training centre which would not only mean we could provide even more in house courses but we could perhaps even develop and deliver external training.
