We care for others as we would like to be cared for ourselves

With 30 years experience in Home Care making us Ireland’s longest established home care provider, it was a logical step for us for to open our own home health care training department in 2016. Our QQI Accredited Programmes are delivered in association with The Cpl Institute, an accredited QQI Provider.

Professional Carers

Why is Training Important?

The nature of caring means we are going into people’s homes, into their private space. Often our clients can be vulnerable, due to ageing or a variety of ailments. So it is essential that carers are trained to ensure they carry out their responsibilities correctly and safely, with empathy and respect.

Our ethos is that we care for others as we would like to be cared for ourselves. To truly deliver on this, we operate to the highest standards. As we are a HSE approved supplier, we must also meet – and prove that we meet – their rigorous standards also.

For all of these reasons, carers must meet a minimum criteria of qualifications to be offered work as a carer.

Training FAQs

We can help. Please contact our friendly recruitment department. If you pass our interview and Garda vetting, you are welcome to attend relevant training course(s). Once enrolled on our training courses, we can start to match you with relevant clients in your area.

Don’t worry. Home care is a wonderful profession for people of all ages and backgrounds as you can start it early or late in your life, and you can work a few or a lot of hours. So every class always has a wide range of learners, many of whom have not been in a classroom for decades. We are mindful of this. Our training style is friendly and supportive.

That’s ok. Our courses run frequently throughout the year. Choose the dates that work for you and learn at your own pace.

Learners receive a QQI Certification upon successful completion of a course. All of our QQI courses are certified by The CPL Institute, part of our parent company.

Learners on non-QQI courses receive a Private HomeCare certificate.  Learners who have completed and passed any QQI module are invited to our formal annual graduation ceremony, which takes place this year on Thursday March 28th at Finnstown House.

Our 2 day Induction To Caring Course for all our carers is free to attend. Other courses incur a fee. Please check each course for fees. All materials are included in this fee.
