  • Yes they do. You get the training you need. One of the best company for training that I've worked for.

  • Yes the company do and they do train staff up in the long term. Training in the short term however is poor and often new starters can feel overwhelmed.

  • Yes, they usually do take on people who have no experience working, but they will train them.

  • Yes they do despite what others have said. They look at avkies and beliefs and will train. Everyone gets a good shadowing time. However some staff who came in thought they knew it all and therefore didn’t work as part of a team
    The majority of the teams work hard to see new staff feel comfortable before asking them to do anything and will happily help you out. The training is good and the managers supportive in my experience , some more than others.

    Looking at the answers below it is quite plain the review is from one particular person who thought they were above the rest of the team and in fact fails to mention their own failings and general behaviour

    As for shift leaders they are present to guide the team and not to take full responsibility for the shift - teamwork - and that includes at least two weeks of shadowing as an extra staff above normal staffing levels

    And as for one person with three people this has been on a night shift when the clients are sleeping

    If you’re going to leave an answer, be truthful and not show your own grievances

    A lot of the staff have worked in this service since 2005 , staff turnover is generally good and only high in the staff who throw dummies out of roams because they are pulled up about their own practice and don’t like it

  • No, but people who have come into the workplace have been thrown in the deep end with jobs they have no experience to do. Which puts more pressure on the shift leader. Staffing levels are appalling for the care needed. I have been on shift when in one of the properties there has been 1 member of staff to 3 service users. Anyone reading this should seriously look more into turning point before considering applying. I have worked in many industries and this is the worst place ever.

  • No I would not
