At Bramley Care, our values are at the heart of everything we do. These values underpin our philosophy of care and respect for our residents in our three care homes and our home care clients. But equally important, also the way in which we look after our valued employees. Staff development is extremely important to us. We offer a comprehensive training package to QCF Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care and encourage all our staff to study beyond this if they are keen to progress to management roles.

At Bramley Care we have a strong culture of staff training and improvement. Many of our staff have gained their career foundations with us and moved on to exciting jobs in the health sector, but we are also very keen to promote internally and encourage our Care Assistants to take on additional responsibilities, giving them opportunities for promotion to Senior Carer roles. Several of our Senior Managers have worked their way up from Care Assistant roles and as a result our staff retention is very high. Our commitment to staff development is vitally important to our ethos and is reflected in our CQC report and the feedback from our Investors in People accreditation.
