Wow, boss, I just learnt that there is an organisation called Dewdrop Foundation and they have training for domestic staff under one of their arms known as Dewdrop Institute.
I thought that was amazing because, we do not have a lot of consultants and resource persons focused on that area compared to other fields.
Well, this training for domestic staff and care-givers intends to give them professional certificates from City and Guilds, London and get them better equipped in their job as care givers. They will also be captured in the database of the training institute. Trainees will get the privilege of being placed on jobs after their graduation from the training.
This is an important training considering the kind of threat posed by untrained domestic staff in the home.
Training commences on 18th April, 2016 at No 20 Dar Es Salaam Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja
To learn more about the programme, time frame and course content, please call: Judith on 09080161319
Read the official release when you continue...
Many people who take care of the home and provide care giving services to children have no real training for the roles. This poses a significant risk as they may not know what it means to render basic first aid, maintain proper hygiene and have basic communication skill for the day to day assignments where they are employed.
In line with this, Dewdrop Institute, the training arm of Dewdrop Foundation is bringing a well-packaged 3 months training course which will give participants skills in the following areas: Safety and Protection in Care Practice, Communication Skills, Diversity and Stereotyping, Health, Hygiene and Nutrition Management, First Aid Skills, etc.
Participants will be tutored by facilitators with decades of experience in health and social care in and outside Nigeria. Upon successful completion of the training the trainees will be issued a globally recognized certificate from City and Guilds, London.
The certificate will further afford them professional assistance from Dew drop Institute and will also help them further their careers in the field of care giving.
This training programme is meant for: nurses, young school leavers, domestic staff, crèche teachers, primary and secondary school teachers, early retirees e.t.c.
The programme is packaged in a flexible way to suit every schedule and help them maximize what the programme offers.
The morning session runs from 9am to 12pm while the afternoon session runs from 1pm to 4pm. The classes will hold at No. 20 Dar Es Salaam street, Wuse II, Abuja starting from 18th of April, 2016.
