Training is nothing, will is everything. The will to act. So said the baddy in Batman Begins. What the heck does he know about training? He was a megalomaniac, not the amazing Group Trainer that we are looking to recruit.


Having said that, I think he did teach Batman a thing or two. However, Batman's point was a good one. Great training gives people the will to act, and to do so with the confidence and conviction that is professionalism.


You do not have to be a Batman expert to apply for this job. You do need to be interested in:


  • A post within a forward-thinking company, known for their increasing portfolio of centres of care and clinical excellence.
  • Having a key role amongst a team of dynamic up and coming managers, each of whom has been handpicked for their expertise, pro-active attitude and excellent local authority links.
  • Well established and comprehensive existing programmes of induction, training and development to get to grips with.
  • An existing culture of best practice, evidenced by CQC Outstanding ratings in some areas.
  • Stunning working environments where no expense has been spared to provide modern, well equipped, yet homely environments for the people in their care.
  • The opportunity to further develop your own career and grow within a burgeoningly successful company.
  • Industry-leading pay and conditions for you and all your colleagues.


Sound interesting. Now we're learning.


We are looking for someone who will be excellent at the duties of:


  • Standardising induction and ongoing training programmes group-wide.
  • Centralising training records and matrixes.
  • Implementing and tracking all that is associated with the above on an ongoing basis.
  • Research, investigation incorporation and dissemination of the latest evidence-based practice, in context with each unique service in the group.
  • Mandating and facilitation of NVQ's level 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care for the Care staff teams.
  • Whilst having the other core responsibility of delivery/facilitation of all mandatory training and associated record-keeping and being the group go-to person, for all training and professional development needs.
  • Signposting further opportunities for professional development.


If you are curious about this opportunity, we would be very pleased to explain more, so please call or apply with a CV.


To succeed in the role you will need to have:


  • Experience of training & coaching (creating and delivering)
  • Qualified NVQ Assessor and preferably Verifier (Internal or external)
  • Preferably an AET (PTLLS), even better if you have CET or DET (or equivalent)
  • Any clinical expertise or a nursing qualification would be advantageous but IS NOT essential.
  • Bags of empathy, energy and personality.
  • Any experience of teaching people with dyslexia or other special needs could also be advantageous.
  • Solid knowledge of NVQ's lvl 2 & 3 in Health and Social Care
  • Any knowledge of Professional and Practice Development Facilitation.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of and experience delivering Mandatory Training


If you may meet this description, please consider this your bat signal. We can't wait to hear from you caped crusader. POW.
