Subject: Come and Get Started with values based recruitment – 5th February 2020

 

Dear Provider,

I am delighted to let you know that we have a series of Getting Started seminars which have been booked in a variety of different venues across the Eastern region. Details of all Eastern events can be accessed here.

However, as a local provider of adult social care services in Suffolk, I’d like to invite you to a half-day workshop to help you get started with values-based recruitment. The workshop takes place on 5th February 2020 from 10am to 3pm in the IP-City Centre, Ipswich.

Come and find out:

  • what workplace values are
  • the benefits of establishing workplace values
  • working with others to develop and agree workplace values
  • communicating your values.

These are the vital first steps you need to take to ensure values are embedded throughout all areas of your recruitment and retention.

There will be an additional short session which introduces the tools and support we have available. Registered managers and service leaders will find this session particularly useful as it will focus on the resources and support for:

  • workforce challenges
  • workplace culture
  • performance management
  • leaders and managers and aspiring leaders and managers

It will also include practical examples of what ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ rated care looks like in practice.

 

Places are limited, and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis so please book your place by clicking here.

If you would like to discuss the Getting Started seminar further, or would like to have a general discussion around the suite of products which are available to help you with recruitment and retention, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Alternatively, if your organisation is interested in hosting an in-house recruitment and retention session for staff, please let Nicola Faulkner (Nicola.Faulkner@skillsforcare.org.uk) know so you can discuss the opportunity to host additional sessions.

 

 

FREE TRAINING – ACTIVITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA

 

NAPA DEMENTIA TRAINING APPLICATION FORM (Autumn 2019)

 

Please find attached details of two free training sessions focusing on activities for people with dementia that we have organised in October and November this year.

The training is delivered in conjunction with the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA). The purpose is to support those who co-ordinate activities as part of their role with improved knowledge that will enable them to better support people with dementia to ‘enjoy spending time purposefully and enjoyably doing things that bring them pleasure and meaning’.

 

Places on both courses are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
