Learning and development is something that we take seriously at Calon Lan.

We know that the excellent reputation we have achieved over the past 15 years can only be maintained by committing to selecting and training the very best Care Workers. This is why we invest so much time, energy and resources into the training, development and on-going support of all of our colleagues.

We have a determination at Calon Lan to continuously develop our own in-house training programme as well as proper facilities to ensure that we continue to build on the successes that we have established over the years.  Our Managing Director has been able to develop a unique training experience using industry guidance and his Master’s level education qualification.  We believe that to be a well rounded Care Worker you must combine knowledge with on the job support and guidance.

“The training received is the best I’ve ever had. I learnt so much last time that I am looking forward to my next session. I can take what I’ve learned with me to all my clients and be sure that what I’m doing is the very best approach as the training comes from people who have been carers themselves and that makes a huge difference.”

Our  Training – Making the Best Calon Lan Care Workers

The training team will lead you though a number of classroom sessions and practical activities designed to give you the skills and knowledge which will ensure that you are confident in your role. When you graduate from our Induction and Foundation Training Programme you will be the best care worker you can be.

All of our training has been developed using both Social Care Wales and Skills for Care standards.  Both organisations look at attitudes, values, skills and qualifications necessary to provide the best quality care.

Our Training Programme is headed by our Managing Director, Noel Williams, (PGCert) who oversees training which is then delivered by our skilled and experienced trainers.
