We offer high quality, up-to-the-minute Live in Care Training to all of our self-employed carers, as well as bespoke training packages for other care organisations and individuals.
Our CPD (continuing professional development) ensures that all our live in carers are trained to an excellent standard, firstly at our own training school; and then their skills and knowledge are developed through appropriate NVQ training and other educational opportunities.
Select Carers offer free induction and training courses for newly registered live in carers. We also provide regular refresher training for all our live in carers.
The induction and live in care training courses run from Monday to Friday at our offices in Bristol and Plymouth. To be accepted, carers must first successfully complete our recruitment process.
Through personality testing we assess their suitability for a caring role. If considered suitable, they are then invited to join us. Our person-centred approach inspires us to ensure that our trainees can always meet the changing needs of everyone concerned. They are kind, gentle, well rounded people who are flexible and able to adapt in the ever-changing world of care.
It is quite an intensive course and homework is given out each evening. We also use the training week to complete any paperwork including an enhanced police DBS check.
Our Live in Care Training is delivered by our experienced in-house trainers. We also have our own in-house Registered General Nurse (RGN), Susie Constantine, who interviews, supervises and supports the delivery of Live in Care Training.
It is very important for live in carers to physically fit both in your assignments and to attend our practical training courses, which involve practicing manual handling techniques. You are required to sign a disclaimer stating you have no serious back problems.
There are many local B&B’s which offer reasonable rates for live in carers during our training days.
The career path of our staff is a priority for us, as we believe in the self-actualising process of each and every person, to the highest degree possible.
Our CPD (continuing professional development) ensures that all our self-employed carers are kept up to date with the latest live in care training required by the care industry. Their skills and knowledge are further developed through appropriate NVQ training and other educational opportunities.

Most registered live in carers will have completed the Care Certificate, either with us or in a previous workplace. This qualification provides clear evidence to client organisations, future employers and people who receive care and support that the live in care worker has been trained and developed to a specific set of 15 standards. They will have been assessed for the skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure that they provide compassionate and high quality care and support. The learning outcomes are described below.
