We offer chance to gain paid QCF training

People wishing to gain qualifications, training and careers in care can be paid to do so by us.

New recruits can undertake training in the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) at level two and progress to level three as well as take on on-the-job training.

We offer QCF level two training as standard to all our staff members and they also have the opportunity to progress to level three if they wish.

At levels two and three they will undertake on-the-job training and shadow an already qualified carer as they go about their daily routes caring for our service users.

When undergoing practical training such as this, it allows people to ask any questions they might have, such as questions regarding correct procedures. They’ll be able to see how various tasks are carried out as well as have a go at them themselves under supervision.

It also allows them to chat to an experienced carer or manager about any queries they might have about the more formal parts of the qualification, such as the written work. They’ll be able to get a bit more of an insight into it from someone who has been there themselves, which is extremely reassuring for them. After the training, they will then be tested on their knowledge base with some written work before gaining their level three qualification.

We’re urging anyone thinking of changing their job, or getting back into the work force again, to get in touch as soon as possible and not to miss out on this fantastic career opportunity. We provide all our staff full paid training and they have additional, on the job support from a local team 24/7. We give free uniforms and a national staff discount scheme for all major brands.

We have jobs available in the area now with immediate start, no experience necessary just a willingness to care and to learn. Our company induction includes first aid, dementia awareness, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users.

There are lots of opportunities for internal advancement for all our team members who show commitment, reliability and true passion. We provide a great support network for all of our carers too.

The QCF training is delivered by AAA Training Solutions, which works with care providers to deliver high quality training and assessments via its Apprenticeship Programme and stand-alone Diplomas and Certificates.

The team at AAA Training Solutions has an in-depth understanding of the care sector’s training and apprenticeship requirements. Its experienced nationwide team of trainers and assessors deliver a comprehensive range of courses that run from induction through to Level 5.

Jason Jones, Regional Manager at Abacare in Bangor, who is currently undergoing QCF level two training, said: “I am really enjoying my QCF training and am learning lots every day. I have been able to undertake various tasks myself as well as shadow another carer to see how certain things are done. I have felt extremely comfortable asking any questions I’ve had and have found the extra insight into the industry to be very helpful – this is definitely something I want to do on a long-term basis and would highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a career.”
