Altura Learning: Prizes and Surveys

Altura Learning partners with The Care Workers Charity to celebrate the winner of their writing competition.

 Altura Learning UK was privileged to have the winner of The Care Workers Charity annual writing competition join them in the studio at the Milton Keynes office in January. The winner for the ever popular writing competition was Chris Woodward, a former Care Worker.

Chris wrote a beautiful poem ‘Alone’, which he was inspired to write after working closely with many dementia patients over the years. Travelling to the Altura Learning office in Milton Keynes, Chris kindly accepted the opportunity to share his poem on camera. To view the poem recited by Chris, click here.

The Care Workers Charity continues to run the writing competition and is encouraging care workers to submit entries about their daily lives and help celebrate the passion of staff who routinely go the extra mile.

Give your views on a new blended learning and recruitment model
Research from social care recruitment experts, Cohesion, has found that new starters are seeking opportunities to develop in and beyond their current role as early as 12 weeks into their new role within an organisation. As a result, they believe that introducing learning into the recruitment and on boarding employment cycle can positively impact the quality of candidates and retention of new recruits.
In partnership with Altura Learning and Neil Eastwood from Care Friends, they would like your input on a new blended learning and recruitment model. They will be sharing their findings at the NCF Annual Conference later in the year. To take part please complete the survey via the following link:
