Leckey launch Employee Clinical Training Programme14th April 2016
Leckey formally launches a new Employee Clinical Training Programme, endorsed by the British Healthcare Trade Association.
Leckey formally launched a new Employee Clinical Training Programme this week, endorsed by the British Healthcare Trades Association. The three-tiered programme, designed to meet the needs of all employees at every position within the company, includes an overview of disability for manufacturing teams, clinical terminology for customer facing employees, and assessment and measurement techniques for product specialists.
Developed by the company's Clinical Manager and Occupational Therapist, Clare Canale, the programme is designed to support employees at an individual level, as well as help to deliver the wider strategic aim of promoting a clinical culture throughout the company. Clare said, "Understanding the clinical needs of the children we work with, even at a basic level, is fundamental to each and every employee recognising the importance of their individual contribution to improving the quality of life of children with disabilities. Undertaking clinical training and the endorsement by BHTA helps to reinforce just how important this contribution is."
Beverley Copeland, Human Resources Manager for Leckey agrees saying, "We believe that the high quality of our products and services are a reflection of the skills of our workforce, the investment that we make to their development and their commitment to continually learn. This training programme is a significant step for us as an employer because it is an accredited programme for every team member. The programme supports our overall aim of retaining and developing our Investors in People accreditation, and creating a great place to work through developing our people."
Tony McCann who works in Leckey Distribution Centre said of the training, "It was really brilliant to see how our products actually help the children."
The programme will be rolled out across the company, with every existing employee receiving the appropriate level of clinical training by the end of 2016, and new employees on a quarterly basis thereafter.
