Child First is committed to continuous improvements and, while there are a number of training opportunities for the staff teams, it is important that some of this are not carried out in the evenings and weekends so that we can Involve the whole team. As part of this programme, Welbeck Child First has allocated five ‘working days’ when staff will be required to carry out essential training including first aid. Please note that these training days are payable at your usual daily rate and sessions in lieu cannot be arranged. We hope you will recognise the importance of this to improve our services to you and the children and thank you for your support.
