The Responsibilities of signing off HCAs

The responsibility of signing off HCA,  Nursing Associates,  Junior GPNs & Student Nurses lies on Supervisors and Assessors.  Once a trainee completes their competencies and reflects on their practice they can be signed off and the training hub will issue the certificate of competency. So please ensure you support any learners or trainees under your practice you do not have to have a teaching or mentorship course to assess someone and deem them competent to perform the clinical skill that you know they already perform,  however if you are not sure and do not feel competent  to do this.

If you wish to find out more please email FAO: clh.traininghub@nhs.net or email carmen.wyles@nhs.net

FREE CPD for experienced GPNs

HEE (London) is funding a total of 50 places for GPNs on a first come, first served basis. This means the nurses will NOT  need to pay for the course. The price on the flyer is for those areas not covered by HEE (London) funding and because it is the required format for the university.

Of those 50 places, 30 are for those who wish to do the Work-Based module alongside the Masterclasses to obtain 15 academic credits at either Level 6 or Level 7.

When applying, the nurses will need to specify which HEE London region they are part of for confirmation of funding. If they put an NHS trust down, the funding request will be rejected. 

If more than 50 GPNs apply for the course, we will ask HEE for additional funding, but have no idea if that will be granted. Please click here for more information.

Care Certificates

 

You will recall that the Care Certificate was developed following a review of health and social care support workers, and their training and development, by Camilla Cavendish in 2013.

Designed with the unregistered workforce in mind, the Care Certificate was implemented to provide a structured and consistent learning approach to induction, ensuring that care workers have the knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, quality care and support. (HEE 2015)

Hence if you have HCAs who have not completed the above mentioned programme or other staff such as; receptionists who wish to train in a supporting capacity as a support worker. Kindly ensure that they are enrolled on this e-learning programme. This programme is also compulsory for HCAs or support works to enrol on the Trainee Nursing Associates programme (TNA) and a requirement that CQC inspectors will check.

For further information and registration, please email Carmen Wyles at  clh.traininghub@nhs.net
