STEP: Senior Carers Course

What is the STEP Senior Carers Course?

Healthcare Support Workers play a vital role in providing high quality patient care; their skills and experience are highly valued throughout the healthcare industry and healthcare organisations are now looking to bridge the gap in skills and knowledge between carers and registered nurses. 

This course is delivered over a 6 week period, 1 full day per week. Our nurse-led clinical training team will teach carers to obtain a variety of skills traditionally only undertaken by registered nurses to strengthen their fundamental skills. The STEP senior carers course aims to enhance collaboration between senior carers and registered nurses and provides an opportunity for professional development for carers whilst also improving efficiency, patient safety and healthcare outcomes within the care home setting.
