Staff Training

Phew is committed to providing the best possible provision and care for guests who use this service. It is our aim to ensure that all members of staff have the knowledge and training to support guests in any way that help is required. To achieve this, staff will receive such training both formal and informal as they require. Some of the training will be to address the needs of guests who are new to the service and other training will be to refresh or add to the knowledge and skills staff have already.

We believe in providing consistent, creative support by experienced and knowledgeable staff to support individuals. Staff have participated in Moving & Handling, Food Hygiene, Tracheostomy Care, First Aid, Epilepsy Training, Midazolam Administration, Hydrocortisone Administration, Gastrostomy Awareness & Epipen Training.

In addition, we have made a special effort to update and refresh child and adult protection training, challenging behaviour training, principals and value training and use of behaviour management intervention strategies training (CALM). Further sessions focused on the Keys to Life and getting it right for children strategies and were linked to training introducing new support plan formats including planning for specific outcomes. As required, new staff are supported to obtain relevant qualifying courses in child and adult care.

Recruitment

We only recruit people who we believe offer the right mix of the very best levels of skills and expertise, matched by a real passion and devotion to the job.

We are delighted that you are interested in working with Phew. At present, we do not have any vacancies, however positions may become available in the future so please continue to check here.

Whistleblowing

We are committed to achieving and maintaining high standards with regard to behaviour at work, the services we provide and in all working practices. Staff can raise any issues which concern them at work via our whistleblowing process which provides the means to encourage the reporting of genuine concerns about malpractice, illegal acts or failures to comply with recognised standards of work without fear of reprisal or victimisation.
