Accrington-based Springhill Care Home is demonstrating its commitment to training of its staff with the appointment of an experienced professional to lead staff training.
With a strong background in social care, including a BSc in Medical Sciences from the University of Leeds and roles in domiciliary care, Sophie joins the team as learning and development coordinator.
She has worked as an assessor in fields including medical administration, health and social care, business administration and the assistant practitioner diploma.
Sophie, who lives in Burnley, previously worked as coordinator at Gloucester private training provider Summerhouse, and has recently completed her first module of an MSc in Mental Health Sciences with the Open University.
In her new role she will work closely with the Springhill Care Group’s head of learning and development, Mike Lakins.
She said: “I believe training is key to any workforce and in order to deliver high-class training, you must constantly develop yourself.
“I’m very excited to work with all the staff at Springhill at all levels to source and deliver the most relevant training for them, ensuring they reach their potential and deliver the highest standards of care for our residents.”
