Gracewell Healthcare’s Training Course Granted RCN Accreditation for Third Time
Gracewell Healthcare’s Clinical Development and Leadership training programme has received re-accreditation from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) for the third year.
The programme continues to lead the field after previously receiving accreditation in 2016 and 2017 from what is the world’s largest nursing union and professional body.
This Programme is available to Deputy Managers, Care Leaders as well as our senior nursing team members who are looking to develop into leadership roles working in Gracewell Healthcare’s 21 homes across the UK.
The programme exists to ensure that the staff responsible for leading the provision of care and nursing in Gracewell homes have the expertise and skills needed to champion clinical governance as well as providing them with the continual support throughout their career to ensure they build skills for the longer term.
After starting in 2014, the programme is continuously reviewed to ensure it is relevant and up to date with changes in practice and that it meets with the learning outcomes required and over the past five years continues delivering to Gracewell’s high standards of excellence in care.
All team members who take part in the training have also benefited from its focus on Continuing Professional Development (CPD), including the opportunity it offers to team members to develop individual objectives and reflect upon their role and journey. The RCN’s accreditation means that the programme has been found to comply with the body’s standards of excellence and best practice promoted across the country.
Dawn Buchanan-Hole, Learning and Development Manager at Gracewell Healthcare, said:
“We are thrilled that the RCN has decided to grant our Clinical Development and Leadership training programme re-accreditation for the third time in formal recognition of its success. Like the RCN, we at Gracewell are committed to offering lifelong learning opportunities to care leaders and deputy leaders across the organisation.
“The care sector can only benefit from the strengthening of CPD opportunities and workforce training. Our programme is designed to guide our employees to create a culture of continuous improvement and committed care to every single individual in our communities. We look forward to continuing to offer the course to future cohorts and seeing it go from strength to strength.”
