Training Employees

We invest heavily in all employees by delivering a high quality induction training which meets the requirements of Skills for Care.

The training package focuses on the complexities of the people we support and provides employees with the skills and knowledge base to deliver personalised support.

Working with individuals, families/carers in the recruitment process

We also engage the individuals we support and their families/carers in the recruitment and selection process to ensure our employees have the values, skills and attitudes we are looking for and to ensure compatibility between our new recruits and the people we support.

Values Driven Staff

Our commitment to providing high quality services is shown through the enthusiasm and commitment of employees who go the extra mile to deliver personalised support to individuals, support their families/carers and their colleagues.

Research with MMU

Research was undertaken with Manchester Metropolitan University in 2018 with Dr Steven Walsh to make sure that Future Directions positive behaviour training was evidence based and person centred.  The findings were published in the Learning Disability Journal.  The actual research was Investigating the Impact of Staff Training in Positive Behavioural Support on Service Users Quality of Life. The findings clearly evidenced the PBS and standard of training did improve the quality of life.
