This week our lovely Ben is at the Hamilton Princess Hotel in Bermuda, training their new childcare team to Worldwide Kids’ famous standards.
Over the next 6 days, Ben will be training their team to Worldwide Kids standards on everything from paediatric first aid to safety policies and procedures, activity planning and positive relationship building with kids and parents, and lots more. Our training programme is accredited by City and Guilds, and covers every aspect of successfully and safely managing a childcare environment in a hotel or resort.
At the end of the 6 days, each team member will complete assessments for each of the 12 training units.
But we don’t stop there. It’s all very good to pass a test, but for us to know we’ve done a great job, we will continue to work with the team over the next 6 months, asking them to complete a number of performance evidence reports to demonstrate that they are practising the skills they have learned, within the childcare environment itself.
