Prior to working alone with people, a new member will gain knowledge and experience by working alongside senior staff members to teach our agreed ways of working. This shadowing period includes observing experienced staff working in different caring and support situations. This will allow our new staff to watch, listen and learn and put into practice some of the skills they have learned already.
This will be followed by being supervised working until deemed confident and competent to carry out care within Britannia Homecare's agreed ways of working. This process is not limited and based upon each staff member individual progress in this process.
