Last week the team at Birch Green had fun learning and updating their skills in a moving and handling training course.
Angie Hart, a Registered Nurse at Birch Green, is also a qualified moving and handing training facilitator and she enjoys sharing her knowledge with colleagues to continue maintaining high standards throughout the home.
Moving and handling is something that needs to be carefully carried out within a care environment, so it is important that staff are constantly being trained in this area.
The session was aimed at newly recruited staff to bring their knowledge in line with company standards however, it was also opened up to other employees who required refresher training.
Sian Gardner, Learning and Development Coordinator at Birch Green said: “The moving and handling course is one of many training sessions which we hold in house at Birch Green Care Home for all the staff no matter what job role they do.
“We are extremely focused on the development of staff and take training very seriously to make sure our staff have the necessary skills set and knowledge to provide a high standard of care to the residents.
Michael Lakins, Head of Learning and Development for Springhill Care Group added: “It is always a pleasure to see staff enjoying training. Internal and external trainers who work with us always strive to make training an enjoyable experience.
“At Springhill Care Group, we take training very seriously, making sure our staff are equipped with the necessary skill set and knowledge to underpin their practice.
“Staff across all three sites within the group recognise that attending regular mandatory refresher training is a legal requirement and it is their responsibility to ensure that all training is up to date.”
