Christies Care are proud to announce that both our Induction and Update training courses have achieved accredited CPD Status with the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Standards Office.

The Professional Development Consortium is home to the CPD Standards Office, the CPD Research Project and the Provider of Training Excellence. Their wealth of knowledge and research within the Learning and Development Industry and their team of industry professionals on the Expert Advisory Board are a few of the reasons that contribute to the detailed and rigorous assessment processes they have in place.

The Christies Care training programme is admired as the Gold Standard throughout our industry and the wider community and is one of the reasons we attract such a diverse array of clients with many different and often demanding needs.

Whilst we pride ourselves on the depth and detail of our training, we felt that having the CPD accreditation would only enhance our status with an internationally recognised standard that fosters best practice and support.

To achieve the accreditation, Christies Care underwent a rigorous assessment process. This focused on the development and delivery of our training, how we collect and utilise our carer trainee feedback and how we ensure our content is kept up to date.

“For us it’s a win-win!

For Christies Care, having our training assessed by the CPD Standards Office forces us to ensure we maintain the high quality and consistency of our award-winning training.

And our carers benefit from a consistent, up-to-date, training programme with ongoing skills support along with the career benefits that come from working towards and passing the CPD accredited training.”

Helen Drain, Training Team Leader & Dementia Trainer

“We know that our training is the best in the country.

But we didn’t have any way to prove that, apart from our Princess Royal Training Award.

That’s why we decided to get our carer training properly accredited.”

Freddy Gathorne-Hardy, Managing Director

What does this CPD accreditation mean?

It means that our training is held to account and audited by an outside organisation.

And the independent experts audit us, so standards have to be kept high.

What does this mean to our clients?

It means that they can be sure that their carers have got the skills and knowledge they need to do the very best work for them.

What does this mean to our carers?

It means that they have done independently accredited training courses.

They know that they are getting the training they need to give them the skills and knowledge they need to do their job well.
