Here is some information about new courses on offer

A recently filmed addition to the portfolio is ‘Confidentiality and Information Handling’. This has been filmed across 3 streams, Residential, Home Care and Disability. The residential part of the film was filmed at Lyndon House, St Alban’s, home of the Salvation Army, an NCF member and a valuable member of the Altura Learning community.

A popular and very useful course is Preparing for an Inspection’, supported by Jill Timms, Care Consultant in Oxfordshire, who offers guidance to anyone needing help with preparation for CQC / LA Inspections.
A qualified Nurse, Jill became a successful Manager of an Oxfordshire Nursing Home for many years, progressing to Area Manager for that Care Home Group; Peverel Court Care. Whilst still working at Peverel Court Care, Jill decided she needed a new challenge, so set up a consultancy: “Helping Manager’s Manage”.

Jill developed her consultancy, mainly around the subjects of CQC Hot Topics of Inspection, Preparation for Inspections and Quality Monitoring, with the development of a Quality Monitoring Toolkit.

Jill has provided some handy ‘top tips’ that you can ‘cut out and keep’ when preparing for an inspection, helping you and your teams take out the pressure of preparing for an inspection.
