Teaching Care Centre

The people who work at Pendine Park are our biggest asset. Our nurses, care practitioners and ancillary team members are chosen for their caring nature, commitment and friendliness. As we want to be the best at everything we do, we have developed a Teaching Care Centre with our own on-site, award winning training company Smartcare Training. This helps us deliver the highest possible standard of care through staff training to promote personal and professional development.

The Teaching Care Centre has been nationally recognised with commendations at The Welsh Assembly Government sponsored Social Care Accolades in 2005 and National 2006 Training Awards. We were also delighted to receive a Wales Training Award in 2007 whilst one of our NVQ management trainees received a City & Guilds Medal of Excellence Award presented by the Duke of Edinburgh at St James's Palace in May 2007. The Investors in People (UK) award was achieved in 2000.

As well as training our own staff we undertake training for many Care providers at Smartcare Training. Click here for Smartcare Training website. Smartcare is Managed by Ann Farr.
