Training and continuing professional development is an important aspect of Bluebird Care’s staff development programme. Evidence of this is the recent training undertaken by the team in Co. Meath.
Directors Gavin Kane & J.J Fay say their staff show a great willingness to complete on the job training and have an appetite to learn new skills. “In the past 4 weeks we have completed a series of training courses which add value to our customers’ care.”
