Abacare is committed to training its employees to the highest standard in health and social care. For people who have already worked in the Care Sector we offer refresher training and advancement through QCFs and Apprenticeships.

For people who have never worked in care we offer free and comprehensive induction training followed by shadowing with experienced members of the team as well as the opportunities for advancement via QCFs and Apprenticeships.

It is our intention to ensure Abacare is at the cutting edge of the latest and best practices and to maintain a caring ethos within the group, to ensure our core values are never forgotten and to share, wherever possible, in the success of the business with the Carers we employ, through various schemes, in order that the entire team will continue to feel valued and aim for the same goals.

What to Expect from an Abacare Interview

Do I need any skills or qualifications?

To register as a community carer no formal qualifications are required. However the position of a community carer is a responsible one and often very demanding. An honest caring nature is essential. The organisation also promotes the continuing professional development of all employed community carer who following the induction period will be offered and encouraged to attain a QCF Level 2/3 in Health & Social Care qualification. It is also generally a requirement that you can drive a car or a scooter or motorbike.

What help & support do you offer community carers?

We aim to support our care workers through continuing professional development, spot checks and supervisions and via our 24 hr on call service responding to any problems or queries you may have.
