We have expanded into new training space for our growing number of care assistants
At Bluebird Care Slough, S.Bucks & S.Wycombe, we have taken on an additional office to create a dedicated training area for our growing number of care staff.Bluebird Care Slough, S.Bucks & S.Wycombe currently has over 100 care assistants, and all new staff must complete thorough training upon joining, with 19 care assistants recently completing BTECs in Dementia Awareness.
As numbers of staff have grown this year, space at our Summers Road office has grown tighter and when the appropriate space became available, owners Anne and Ian Inglis decided to expand.
The new office provides a dedicated training facility and a separate meeting room. The existing training room has been converted into additional office space for staff, also enabling a staffroom to be created.
Director of Bluebird Care Slough, S.Bucks & S.Wycombe, Ian Inglis, commented:
Our deputy care manager, Katy Cresswell, who works closely with the college said:
Since June, we have strengthened our office and management team with Elaine Phillpot joining as Recruitment Manager, Kellie Murray appointed as Office Administrator and Annie Greenfield joining as Office Administrative Support. We have also recruited additional care assistants – swelling our total number of staff to over 100.
There have also been a number of internal promotions; and we are planning further appointments for a number of additional senior care assistants and field supervisor positions to support those already in place.
