Innovative Clinical Care Practitioner Training Programme

The Pendine Academy of Social Care trains selected Senior Care Practitioners to become Clinical Care Practitioners.

This career development opportunity, enables this trained group to undertake delegated clinical tasks from Nurses.

Our experienced Nurses and trainers, virtual care home environment and pop-up experiences, create a real practice feel to engage and embed this clinical learning and skills.

Small personal training groups, reflective practice and competency observations are motivating and build confidence.

Clinical skills covered include:

  • Baseline Observations
  • Administration of Medications
  • Dressings and Wound Care
  • Ventilator and Tracheostomy Care
  • Oxygen Therapy

  • Other areas covered include:
  • Care Planning
  • Supervisory and Mentoring Skills
  • Delegation and shift co-ordination

  • This training is a potential step on our training pathway for Senior Care Practitioners once they have reached level 3 on the Pendine Pathway.

    We also look to recruit Senior Care Practitioners to join this exciting programme.
