The training centre was set up 10 years ago to provide in house training for our staff and is managed by a registered nurse who is an NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier. She is supported by other nurses and carers who are also NVQ Assessors and has recently expanded its activities to provide NVQ training externally, being successful in obtaining funding from Lincolnshire Development. Also training programs covering mandatory training requirements and other work related topics are regularly run.

We are registered as a training centre with City and Guilds and also as a RCN resource centre.

STAFF TRAINING: All Gosberton House staff receive an induction and full training in all aspects of care in addition to the requirements of the Care Standards Act. Mandatory training is carried out on an annual basis and all carers are encouraged to undertake NVQ level 2 with some going on to level 3.

Before promotion to senior level, carers receive in house training and the home tutor carries out continuous assessment of the carers progress.

The homes staff participate in palliative and terminal care training with the Sue Ryder Hospice organisation and work closely with St Barnabas Hospice and Macmillan Nurses.
