Basic Training

Everyone who works for us is trained to meet mandatory and essential standards and you’ll find we train our colleagues beyond the minimum requirements. Within your first week of employment, you’ll be invited to start your induction journey. 

We have our own learning academy. Alongside some face-to-face learning, you will complete a majority of your mandatory training online and learn a variety of topics, including health and safety and fire safety at work. All our courses are regularly updated so your knowledge will always be at the forefront of the sector. 

You may also have opportunities for more specialist training to meet the needs of the people you support. 

  • “Dimensions trained 18 of us for Level One and Two British Sign Language to help meet the needs of someone we would be supporting.” – Ailish 
  • “In my role I’ve learnt Makaton, which is a communication tool. I’ve also started teaching Makaton workshops to about 60-70 members of staff so far… I feel as though Dimensions has put its faith in me.” – Mark
