Agency Staff Training Programme

We strongly believe that agency staff should be an asset- not simply a way to bulk numbers- bums on seats as it where.

That’s why we put all our agency staff through a full face to face induction training course when they start.

In addition our training (delivered by Aiker Training, our commercial training division) is above and beyond the minimum requirements as set out by Skills For Health and Skills For Care.

First Aid Training For Agency Staff with Aiker Recruitment

Emergency First Aid At Work

We know most Agency staff only receive Basic Life Support (4 hours) or an e-learning course on First Aid. 

We also know that is barely adequate.

So we provide a full 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work course. As standard.

As well as CPR the course covers a range of other first aid skills.

GSA Breakaways & PMVA

As standard all our staff are trained in Breakaway & Personal Safety to the GSA standard.

We also offer full PMVA training for services that require it. PMVA training also includes:

  • De-escalation Skills
  • Understanding Challenging Beheaviour
  • Trauma Informed Care
  • Physical Risks of Restraint

Level 3 Safeguarding

Safeguarding is one of the most important aspects of any role in any care setting.

We also know that agency staff can just as easily be the subject of Safeguarding concerns as employed permenant staff.

Thats we why go above any beyond and train all our staff to the OFQUAL Level 3 qualificaiton standard. The course covers both safeguarding adults and children.
