Here at Strode Park we are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer, an accreditation given to organisations that pledge to actively seek out and hire skilled people with disabilities, and to positively change attitudes, behaviours and cultures, within their businesses and local communities.
The commitment to being a Disability Confident Employer stems from the Foundation’s aim to promote independence and opportunities for people with disabilities and encourage an inclusive and diverse environment for everyone at Strode Park.
We are committed to the learning and development of all our staff and we can offer you fantastic training opportunities.
You’ll start your journey at Strode Park with a classroom-based induction week where our friendly and knowledgeable training team will support you through our important mandatory training programme. This ensures you are well equipped with the right tools and skills to carry out your role to the high standards we require. During the induction week, those working in care roles will also be given Skills for Care’s Care Certificate to complete. Following the induction week, role specific training is provided throughout your employment.
