Staff Training / Staffing Levels / Current Staff

Here at Stone House we are proud of the fact that most our staff have studied for, and hold NVQ Certificates 2 or 3, or an equivalent. Most of the staff have First Aid Certificates, and all caring staff members have attended Safer Handling courses. All new care staff who started from 1st April 2105 will receive a care certificate on completion of all mandatory courses that we be allocated to them within their probation period. Vari-ous other courses are taken annual to enable staff to be proficient in dif-ferent aspects of caring, and our cooks and kitchen assistants each hold a Food Hygiene Certificate.
