Every new candidate that joins our team undertakes, mandatory training to ensure they are at the highest Care Certificate standards. 

Our mandatory 2-day training course is a training solution or refresher for experienced health care professionals and brand new staff to the industry. Our training is held face to face at our offices; this is also a huge plus point as our trainer can be on hand for questions for the various module elements that are part of the training. 

All of our trainer courses assist with compliance of the Care Certificate standards developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health and in meeting with regulating/inspecting body training requirements.

At Coast 2 Coast Care, we have tailor-made our mandatory training course, so all our HCA’s or Support Workers need to complete the course before going out to work. The compulsory training happens over two consecutive days, and in addition to that, we can also offer further training on different aspects of care.

New starter or re-training 

The training we provide at Coast 2 Coast enables our staff to provide the highest standard of person-centred care possible to the individuals they support. All staff attend two days of mandatory training, whether they have a career change or are currently working within the care sector.
