A NURSING home in Formby has launched a new learning and development academy.
Freshfields, run by Valorum Care Group, has created The Valorum Care Group Academy to build skills and provide specialist training modules for people working in the home and those interested in advancing their career in care.
Frontline care staff at Freshfields nursing home, which provides specialist care and support to up to 33 people with physical disability or neurological conditions, will be offered a “clearly defined career ladder” which will allow them to move up from support worker roles to more senior positions.
Chloé Foster, People Director at Valorum Care Group, said: “We are passionate about supporting our colleagues to learn and develop, to become experts and grow in their careers. The VCG Academy will bring all Valorum Care Group’s learning and development opportunities for its employees under one roof.”
“With job stability, security and financial rewards, there is no better time to consider working in the care sector. As leading providers, we want people to have high expectations of a career in social care. To this end, the academy will have a defined focus on both frontline and leadership roles and will give people a clear career pathway to realise their ambitions.”
