Norah Ryan, Training Manager, Barrow Training

At a crossroads in your life? Wondering what to do next? Are you interested in a Career in Homecare?

Did you know the minimum HIQA requirement to work as a home carer is Care Skills and Care of the Older Person QQI L5?

These modules are usually delivered over 5 days each.   However, as they have many similar Learning Outcomes Barrow Training have integrated them together and can now deliver both over 7 days in total.   It also results in a significant cost saving to you the learner.   After this training you will have the minimum HIQA requirements to work in a Home Care Setting so you are ready to seek employment.

The Aim is to equip the learner with the knowledge, skills and competence to care for clients in a safe and hygienic environment and the needs of older people in a variety of care settings including the Home Care Sector.

Our tutors for this training are excellent, learner focused and committed to giving you the best possible training experience.   For some people it may be a while since last venturing into the classroom and are worried about doing assignments, presentations etc. but let me reassure you here and now there is no need.   Relax!   Barrow Training are steadfast in our desire to provide every learner with the support and confidence needed to tackle the challenge and ensure a positive outcome.

After you have completed this you may then decide to further your learning.   If so great!!   We are here to help to you every step on your road to success.
