Infection Prevention and Control Level 1 /Care Certificate Standard 

Our Level 1 course serves as mandatory training, educating all staff on infection risks. Moreover, it imparts fundamental techniques for cross-infection and contamination control, thus preventing the infection's spread. Additionally, it explores the causes of infection and the importance of having Good Hygiene, hand washing, using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and following agreed ways of working to prevent the spread of infection. Furthermore, it meets the Care certificate requirements, specifically addressing Standard 15, and thus becomes an integral component of this induction training.

Furthermore, our Director, who was a lead Clinical Advisor during the COVID pandemic in a neurological rehabilitation hospital working with vulnerable disabled adults, adds a unique perspective to the training.
