Fully Funded Training

We can provide fully funded Covid-19 essential training for adult social care employers as an approved Skills for Care Endorsed Learning Provider.

First Response Training have secured grant funding to deliver Covid-19 Essential Training for adult social care providers on behalf of Skills for Care.

As a Skills for Care Endorsed learning provider, we are one of just 12 training providers approved to support you with this essential training during this challenging period. The grant funding covers three packages of essential training:

  1. Rapid Induction Programme - aimed at all new starters, people returning to care or those changing jobs within the sector, this covers the main knowledge elements from the Care Certificate and additional essential subjects.
  2. Refresher Training - aimed at staff who urgently need refresher training that has expired or will expire soon, in order for them to continue to work safely. It covers 8 topic areas, including Moving and Assisting, Basic Life Support, Safeguarding and Infection Prevention and Control.
  3. Volunteer Programme - aimed at volunteers in the care sector, this includes an introduction to adult social care and covers topics such as role and responsibilities, whistleblowing, equality, diversity and person centred values.

We are approved to deliver all three learning packages across two main delivery methods: eLearning and webinar.

Care providers must have an Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) account to access the funded training. If you don't have an account, you can register for one online.
