Testimonial

The benefits of the excellent training provided to our staff have reverberated throughout the home. Staff feel more empowered and valued at all levels, not just care staff but ancillary staff too. The staff has a great thirst for knowledge which we are quenching thanks to Connect 2 Care and HIT Training.

Esther Thomas, Manager, Amesbury Abbey Nursing Home

Connect 2 Care [are] always supportive and at the end of a phone, very adaptable to changing needs. The training provided has increased underpinning knowledge throughout my work force and provided an appropriate level of education towards the needs of the residents we care for.

Helen Mullander, Manager, Winton Nursing Home

Over the years, training for care qualifications has been very important to me because it has not only developed my knowledge but it has also made a positive impact within the care settings that I’ve worked in.
