Read about our Huntercombe Academy

You are here: Home / Work with us / Training & Development

We launched our Huntercombe Academy in 2016. The Academy is the name for our programme of training and development that not only supports career progression but also creates a culture for learning and continuous improvement across the business.   Within the Academy we offer a range of training opportunities starting with induction and statutory training and progressing right through to the Care Certificate, e-learning and higher education.

The following development opportunities/programmes are already available:

QCF/SVQ Programmes

We have a range of QCF/SVQ Levels 2 to 5 on offer for our staff which range from Health and Social Care to Business Management. We have partnered with Lifetime Training who provide the coaching and who support each person every step of the way from start to finish.

Grow our own nurses

This course begins with an initial 12 month Open University course called the Higher Education Certificate in Healthcare Practice. This is the equivalent to the first year of the BSc (hons) degree in Adult or Mental Health Nursing.  Members of staff who successfully complete this 12 month course will then be invited to attend a further selection process to apply for the second stage of this programme which, if successfully completed, will lead to the achievement of a Nursing Degree.

Nurse Development Opportunities

Using our partnership with The Open University, we fund places for our qualified staff to undertake a MSc or BSc in healthcare related programmes.   We also offer other short courses through The Open University such as mentorship and clinical leadership.

Nurse Leadership Programme

This is a programme we are very proud of.  It is supported by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and offers our nurses the opportunity to undertake a leadership development course.  There are a number of elements to this programme including: action learning sets, residential training and presenting at a Huntercombe Group Nurse Leadership conference.

Soft Skills Training

We will be launching a new soft skills programme, which will be open to all staff, in the next few months.  Our staff will be able to choose from a range of short face-to-face learning sessions that will help them improve their skills in areas such as presentation and communication , report writing, interview and selection and so on.

We are currently working on a new development programme for our therapy staff which we hope to be able to share later this year.
