Care Staff at Henshaws College are celebrating after passing their Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Our independent specialist college in Harrogate employs a multidisciplinary team of experienced staff, from education staff and care staff to rehabilitation officers and therapists to help each student learn independence skills for the future they choose.
Many of our care staff already have NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care, and this new award means that additional staff can benefit from the very latest training and best practice across the Health and Social Care sector.
Liz Sugden, Head of Student Support and Residential Care, explains why staff have completed the award:
“This diploma is a really valuable qualification for our staff. It involves learning about the latest developments in communication, personal development, equality and duty of care in young people’s settings. These skills are a great asset to our staff and they also learn about person centred approaches which help us to deliver an individual service for every one of our students. We plan for more staff to complete the qualification to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible standards of care for our students during their time at College.”
