Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare training course receives third RCN accreditation


Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare’s Clinical Development and Leadership training course has received Royal College of Nursing accreditation for the third year.

The professional development programme, which is available to deputy managers and care leaders, as well as senior nursing team members, is designed to ensure staff responsible for leading the provision of care and nursing in Sunrise communities and Gracewell homes have the expertise and skills needed to champion clinical governance, as well as providing them with the continual support throughout their career to ensure they build skills for the longer term.

Dawn Buchanan-Hole, Learning and Development Manager at Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare, said: “We are thrilled that the RCN has decided to grant our Clinical Development and Leadership training programme re-accreditation for the third time in formal recognition of its success. Like the RCN, we at Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare are committed to offering lifelong learning opportunities to care leaders and deputy leaders across the organisation.”

All team members who take part in the training have also benefited from its focus on Continuing Professional Development (CPD), including the opportunity it offers to team members to develop individual objectives and reflect upon their role and journey. The RCN’s accreditation means that the programme has been found to comply with the body’s standards of excellence and best practice promoted across the country.

Dawn added: “The care sector can only benefit from the strengthening of CPD opportunities and workforce training. Our programme is designed to guide our employees to create a culture of continuous improvement and committed care to every single individual in our communities. We look forward to continuing to offer the course to future cohorts and seeing it go from strength to strength.”
