Our recruitment procedure is robust and includes a series of checks for all applicants.
We check the qualifications, work history for up to five years, we apply for a criminal records disclosure and a clear POVA (Protection Of Vulnerable Adults/ ISA First result) check must be received before any applicant begins work. All applicants are interviewed twice, a telephone or live web chat interview followed by a face to face interview at our head offices.
Our good reputation and professional, high quality live in care services is provided by a well informed, motivated and skilled team of live in carer’s. Without them, Kent Home Care would not have been able to achieve what it has done to date.
That’s why we invest into our Live in carer’s to ensure that they have the up to date training and the back up support to deliver our high quality live in care and support solutions.
Some of our initial training is completed in house through our small, but effective training and development team. All of our carer’s complete an induction training course which exceeds the current recommendations and requirements from the regulatory body, The Care Quality commission.
Furthermore, the training is provided by an accredited company which offer some units in an e-learning format which enables our carer’s to complete some elements online and its also very easy for them to receive updates and new content this way.
All of our carer’s either already hold or are working towards a recognised qualification in Health and Social care. No matter what experience or qualifications applicants hold when they join us, they all are required to complete our induction course and to achieve a pass grade as a minimum.
