Meet our training team

More jobs, more training, more support. Join Britain’s best home care team.

Meet our expert home care trainers

There is nothing about care that our trainers don’t know. All of them have been carers themselves, and so truly understand what you need to know to be the very best carer yourself.

Our training team runs in-depth courses every week of the year that involve a combination of interactive classroom sessions and practical exercises. Thanks to their knowledge and expertise, our carers can feel confident as they take the first steps on their journey into care with Helping Hands.

 


Moving & Handling Trainer

Julie Mills, Moving & Handling TrainerJulie Mills

After starting out as a carer herself in 2002, Julie joined the training team some years later to pass on her experience and knowledge to new care assistants. She now specialises in safe practices for moving and handling.

“I specialise in ensuring that all of our moving and handling training is of a consistently high quality as more people are providing moving and handling training to carers.”

Among Julie’s impressive list of qualifications, including three NVQs, coaching and mentoring, and providing care for conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s (to name a few), she is also a Level 2 Risk Assessor at Helping Hands.


Specialist Dementia Trainer

Jayne Vale

Jayne Vale, Carer Trainer & Lead Dementia Specialist

Jayne switched careers in 2004 to join for Helping Hands. She said about the move, “Looking back, I wish had started working in care years ago. Now I make a positive difference in people’s lives.”

Following many years as a carer herself, and supporting people living with a wide range of conditions, Jayne joined the training team to pass on her knowledge and expertise to other carers. She now trains new carers coming from Spain and leads our dementia training.

Jayne talked about the people she trains on a weekly basis. “We get to meet a variety of people from all walks of life, all with very different personalities, but they all have one thing in common: they all want to help, support and provide care for those that are not able to do so for themselves.”
