We pride ourselves on our highly skilled, educated and experienced staff team. Amongst the team we have a number of qualified social workers and currently have people undertaking Social Work and other degree training. We have people with psychology degrees, counselling qualifications, an art, teachers, outdoor education qualified staff, and most staff have a minimum of NVQ 3, while several hold NVQ 4.
We have great commitment to staff training and development; we hold the Investor in People award.
All staff receive full induction training which includes basic food hygiene, health and safety, first aid, child protection training and the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention certificate. Staff are also encouraged to access courses organised by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Board including Children Vulnerable to Sexual Exploitation, Substance Abuse and E-Safety amongst others, and courses organised by the Health and Wellbeing Clinic such as Attachments and Attachment Disorder, Self Harm, Eating Disorders, PTSD and Personality Disorders.
We are a happy and friendly team and place great emphasis on team spirit and team work. We all work together and you will frequently see managers working and playing with the children and taking part in shifts.
