But training to be a care worker shouldn’t be a one-off experience, where you get your qualification and call it a day. This is why it is so important to receive ongoing support and training, helping you to better your work and keep up to date with an ever-changing industry.

Your qualification will last you a lifetime, meaning you will be able to continue growing and developing your career even if your time at myCare comes to a close. Working with us is a huge step for your career, offering long-term certification, hands-on training, and invaluable experience. There’s no downside!
Comprehensive Training During Employment
We don’t believe in handing you a qualification and sending you off to figure out the rest. Being a care worker is a dynamic and changing career, with a wide range of services and specialisations. myCare believes that being a great care provider requires constant growth, which is why we are proud to offer comprehensive training opportunities all throughout your employment. You can learn about different areas of care work, how to improve your services, and how to progress your care career.
When working with the myCare team, you will also be surrounded by well-established and highly experienced management personnel, most of whom have firsthand experience as care workers. You will always have skillful people to learn from and ask questions, meaning support is never far away. All of this creates an environment in which you will always be growing and expanding your knowledge base. If you want comprehensive training that continues as you start to work, myCare could be the right choice for you!
Our Employee Assistance Programme
Our dedication to equipping our care workers with everything they need for a flourishing career extends to the resources we make available. Nobody should feel as though they’re ever ‘alone’ in their work, which is why we have put the Employee Assistance Programme by Health Assured in place. Even if you aren’t currently going through a specific training program, there are a range of systems in place to give you all the advice and support you could possibly need throughout your work.
The Employee Assistance Programme essentially gives care workers access to a range of support services. This includes free legal advice to help you get a well-rounded understanding of your field and the legal aspects of any services you may be providing. There are also counselling services readily available to help you process any of your experiences and challenges safely, protecting your personal mental health and well-being at all times. There is also a variety of other support resources available through this program.
