Training

We provide full training for all new carers joining our team. Our training provides the theory and practical skills required to work as a Health Care Assistant for Westminster Homecare.

After completing your induction training you will be required to partake in shadow shifts with a senior carer. After three months you will then meet your branch manager and they will check how you are performing within your role. You’ll be placed on a personal development plan that’s unique to you, so we can identify any support you need for your personal and career development. You will be given ongoing refresher courses, regular meetings and spot checks.

You may be interested in developing your career in care by:

  • Specialising in a particular condition/area, such as dementia care
  • Completing a formal health and social qualification
  • Moving to an office role in care management, our people team, finance or sales and marketing.
