A number of providers have highlighted the benefits of developing a standardised induction programme, to ensure that individuals are equipped with the right knowledge and tools to enable them to deliver high quality care. Additionally, providers have suggested that an on-line assessment tool would support them to determine that the new worker is competent to do their job.
The Workforce Development team at Devon County Council are very keen to support the development of an induction programme, and is calling for Providers and Care Managers to participate in a working group. It is anticipated that a ‘Train the Trainer’ model will be developed, along with resources and assessment tools.
