Sutton caregivers pass NVQ with flying colours

There is call for celebration at the Wallington–based care company, Home Instead Senior Care, as three caregivers have received outstanding results for the NVQ Level 2 qualification.

The trio of ‘caring’ students Alison Legg, Pauline Luke and Myrna Ward, are delighted to have passed their Health and Social Care NVQ with flying colours from Carshalton College.

The course required working from home with support from tutors and the three are unanimous in their recommendation of the service provided by the College.

Commenting on the recent graduates, Sam Mapara, Employer Training Manager said: “It is great to forge links with local businesses such as Home Instead and ensure that their workforce is fully up to date with the necessary qualifications. It is particularly rewarding to see a group that have worked as hard as these Caregivers have, reap the rewards they so rightly deserve.”

The successful group of carers are hopeful that the qualification will provide a significant stepping stone for their careers in care services with Home Instead.
The Wallington office of Home Instead Senior Care was set up by local man, Tony Ward in February last year. Their service ranges from personal care to companionship, meal preparation, post-discharge care, medication reminders, shopping and errands.
