Carer Support Worker

Our Carer Support Workers attend a comprehensive induction and undertake shadowing with other experienced members of staff before delivering care alone. The Induction is structured according to the requirements of the Skills for Care Common Induction Standards. This includes taught modules around:

  • Working Within the Social Care Values Base
  • Effective Communication for the Carer Support Worker
  • Professional Development and the Carer Support Worker
  • Safer Moving and Handling
  • Emergency First Aid
  • Health and Safety at Work
  • The Safeguarding of Individuals

Time spent shadowing experienced members of the care staff in supporting individuals who have a wide range of support needs. During this period, feedback on the new CSW’s progress is sought from their mentor and from service users and the appropriate support given to them by their assigned Line Manager. Shadowing allows a controlled and observed opportunity for knowledge and skills gained during the first week of the Induction to be put into practice.

All Carer Support Workers are supported to complete QCF Levels 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care.
