Our healthcare training

In delivering complex care in the home across the UK, Almond Care places recognises that ongoing training is essential to support the highest standards of care.

To achieve this, we have invested in our own training division, so that we can offer a wide variety of healthcare training to develop the knowledge, experience and qualifications of our staff.

Our industry-standard courses cover a wide range of care issues and specialisms and are linked to the national educational framework, which means they can be used as part of evidence for Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) portfolios, with a certificate of attendance provided to all participants completing courses.

We can also work with local colleges to assist care workers in completing QCF qualifications by providing relevant training and support.

Almond Care’s courses are designed to be accessible, flexible and affordable with a curriculum focus on making learning new skills and fine-tuning existing ones interesting and enjoyable.
