Training and Supervision

All employees are required to attend a variety of training to fulfil our obligations and failure to follow a reasonable request may lead to disciplinary action and failure to attend any mandatory training will prevent you from undertaking any paid work.

The Duty of Care

This is a legal term meaning you have a responsibility towards everyone you come into contact with to ensure they are not caused harm. PBL Care has a responsibility to provide training for you and you have a responsibility to attend that training and adhere to what you are taught.

Training will provide you with the knowledge to give high quality care to your service users, reducing the risk of harm to them and to you.

As with any social or personal care given by you to the service user, the duty of care is absolute and on no account must tasks be performed by you for which you have not been trained.


Whilst every effort has been made to outline the main duties and responsibilities of the post, it should be remembered that a document such as this does not permit every item to be specified in detail. Broad headings therefore may have been used; in which case all usual associated routines are naturally included in this job description.

Staff should not refuse to undertake duties not specified but should record additional duties they feel need specific recognition and these will be considered during supervision and again during annual appraisal.
