CHM’s training special podcast explores best practice and latest learning trends

The latest Care Home Management podcast is a training special where three leading suppliers share their thoughts on best practice and care industry learning trends.

The roundtable-style podcast, sponsored by Myako.com, features Steven Embleton of My Learning Cloud, Peter Hewitson of Edify Training and Faye Oughton from Pinpoint Training.

They start by discussing the lack of a standardised approach to care sector training

“There are two many different approaches to learning and development and a lack of understanding of what is required when it comes to training,” says Embleton. “Care home managers are not clear what training they should be offering their staff or which providers offer the best quality training.”

The role of technology in care home training was also debated by the panel.

Edify’s Hewitson says care homes should be using technology to make training simpler and easier. “Tech is playing a bigger role in education and learning,” he says. “It is helping to improve the standard of training courses and assisting people to learn.”

He says emerging technology such as virtual reality (VR) is one exciting example of what is possible in care home training. VR is already being used to help diagnose dementia and improve first aid training.

The final topic to be discussed on the podcast was how training can inspire people to work in the care sector.

“We need better careers advice and guidance in schools and colleges to inspire people to want to work in health and social care,” says Pin Point Training’s Faye Oughton. “People need to know what training is there to support them and be shown that care can be a positive career as the population ages. We need a clear and professional training pathway.”
