Hilton Nursing Partners is First For Assessment

Hilton Nursing Partners recruits have successfully completed a module of training called ‘Assessment of Health & Social Care Needs’ at Canterbury Christ Church University – the first assessment course in the UK for unregistered care staff.

The bespoke module of training has been designed by Hilton Nursing Partners in partnership with the university to provide their assessors with a route of formal and standardised learning within a professionally recognised framework.

The accredited course consists of a Practice Assessment Document (competencies to be signed off) and an assignment to be submitted. The module can be studied at level 4 to level 6, depending on previous academic experience, and is supported by a Hilton Nursing Partners mentor in addition to face to face support from a tutor at the university.

 

Gemma Tonkinsmith 
Learning and Development Manager at Hilton Nursing Partners says: “I am very pleased to be working in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University. It has made a real difference to employee professional development and impacted positively on those who have completed the course. By undertaking this CPD Standards Office accredited course employees receive a much more defined route to study and reflection providing greater understanding of their role as well as greatly improving their assessment skills.”
