Learning & Development
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to continue to learn and grow throughout their lives. We also know how essential it is for our staff to be trained in providing high quality support so that our customers receive the best possible service.
We are proud to say that our award-winning Learning and Development Team can provide training opportunities to both Avalon staff, carers, customers and even external organisations.
We also have purpose designed and built training suites across the areas we serve, to ensure that we are able to deliver our industry recognised courses in the best possible environment.
Our Staff and Carers
We understand the importance of hiring the best possible candidates, who are trained and/or willing to increase their level of knowledge to meet our high standards.
We offer a comprehensive induction programme in line with the Sector Skills Council Skills for Care standards. This provides the essential foundation for working in a care environment.
These modules can be tailored to suit individual requirements of external organisations.
