E3. How does the service make sure that staff have the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver effective care, support and treatment?
Characteristics of services we would rate as good in this area
All staff, including volunteers, are qualified and have the skills they need to carry out their roles effectively and in line with best practice. The learning needs of staff are identified and training is provided to meet these needs. Staff are supported to maintain and further develop their professional skills and experience.
Staff are supported to deliver effective care and treatment, including through meaningful and timely supervision and appraisal. Where relevant, staff are supported through the process of revalidation. There is a clear and appropriate approach for supporting and managing staff when their performance is poor or variable.
The service has effective policies and processes for recruiting, training and supporting volunteers where necessary. These are implemented and volunteers feel supported and understand their roles and responsibilities.
