Training is essential to what we do at Shaw. We have a team of over 20 trainers spread across the UK who deliver a comprehensive range of training and qualifications to prepare individuals for any role within Shaw and keep them abreast of best practices.
Employees training requirements are identified and a clear path of training mapped out and monitored. Our range of training courses has been created with careful consideration of helping individuals achieve a chosen career path; all levels of training for any care related role.
We offer Apprenticeships in different roles and started our first cohort in 2017. We will announce any new programmes on our website. We also deliver training as a consultancy service and deliver training overseas to countries who want to adopt Shaw’s stringent standards.
