The Portal Dashboard

The Portal Dashboard

You may now be wondering what the Provider Portal looks like. Here is an example of a portal dashboard. You would have a similar dashboard as an employer where you will be able to see all your staff. When you go through the registration process, you will be offered a short video meeting with an Academy representative to show you how to use all aspects of the portal, from adding affiliates (employees), uploading certificates, supporting your staff to engage with the rewards and discounts and more.

Why your employees should be trained and your legal obligations

 

There are so many things to consider when running a business in social care and sometimes staff development and training can be lower down the list of priorities. It is imperative to the success of any business that employees are trained to a best practice standard. Do this and your business or organisation will reap the rewards. Having well trained competent staff will have a positive effect on your business, not only helping with staff retention but also regular training can have a positive effect on your CQC rating. So why should you invest in the development of your staff?

1. Competent and confident staff

Regular training not only enables your staff to feel competent in their roles, but the training room is also a great place for them to ask questions and try out the new skills they have learnt within a safe environment.

The Care sector is rapidly changing with new updates on legislation and guidance happening all the time. By regular training and development, you can ensure that your staff are fully up to date with their knowledge.

Regular training can also boost staff morale. It is an opportunity for individuals to discuss their roles with other like-minded people working in the sector. By investing in your staff, you are showing commitment to them and their ongoing learning and development.

2. Enabling your staff to progress.

Training helps to create a positive culture within an organisation, clear career progression can be a great motivator for some, so showing that as an organisation you are focused on the individual needs of your team members can create an enabling environment. This is turn can help with staff retention.

3. A positive impact on your CQC inspections.

(KLOE) The five key lines of enquiry within the CQC framework are supported by effective training. It is therefore important that effective, regular training is happening within your business or organisation.
