We also offer a very popular classroom training programme. Mark Hardy, who heads up SecuriCares classroom training in the Care Certificate training explains, “We know that good induction training is essential. We know that the knowledge provided will directly impact on the quality of the support provided to service users. Our aim is to deliver this training in a meaningful learner centred way…”

“What I’ve found is that managers are struggling to get staff to put pen to paper in their own time. They need an experienced trainer to motivate and guide learners through the programme… Experience tells me that its very beneficial to have someone to reassure the learners that any fears or anxieties they have about learning can be overcome…”

Mark has developed a way of maximising the learning experience, “What I do with the learners is go through each unit explaining the reasons for needing the knowledge to do their job. This makes the learning experience more real for them. The classroom is set up more like a workshop with different activities to do. The training is very interactive and includes different methods to support learning such as, subject related games and role play. I relate the questions to anecdotal experiences which help with greater understanding…”

Mark expands on creating the right conditions for personalised learning, “Learners can ask questions at any time during the workshop. We have had really good results in getting people through the care certificate whatever barriers people have had, we have overcome during class room sessions rather than online services… If you want to know how we can help you get in touch on 01904 492442 or .…”
