It’s been an exciting week as Be Caring unveils official career progression route to employee-owners
Head of Recruitment and Training at Be Caring, Darren Scholes, is excited to showcase the official document this week. It’s consistent with the brand values and points everyone towards reaching their full potential.
Darren says he “doesn’t want career progression to be restrictive”, while explaining his rationale behind the colourful flow diagram in the brand value colours. >> (View page link here)
“In so many instances there’s just one route to take. We want to do something different. I feel we’re demonstrating that it doesn’t matter where you start your Be Caring journey. Everyone should have the chance to learn something new, and follow their passion.”
Be Caring offers training in a diverse range of specialist care including Learning Disabilities, Dementia, Complex and Palliative care and up to Level 7 Diploma DILMAC. As a result of the strategic partnership with Sunderland College, their education partner for the Level 7 awards, Be Caring is a competitive player for training in their service locations.

Darren continues, “Now we can link the choices our colleagues make with their learning to real career opportunities. This clearly shows the opportunities for those committed to a career in the sector. We’d like to ensure Be Caring can support everyone to reach their full potential, whatever their background or financial situation. So, by removing the associated costs of learning gives everyone the chance to reach a Level 7 qualification. “
So, what does this mean for Be Caring Colleagues?
Their head of training explains, “Our colleagues have told us that training and the chance to learn new skills is important to them. It’s one of their key reasons for choosing Be Caring as a preferred employer. So, delivering on this is critical, and we’re committed to getting this right for our colleagues.”
Via a more focused approach to supporting colleagues on their individual journeys, Be Caring is aiming to nurture strong operational teams in all service locations.
“We’re starting with the basics to create a strong foundation based on our core values. We have highly skilled colleagues who have the ability to support and transform the health and social care system. Most notably they are under-valued because the sector isn’t viewed on a par with the NHS. Through better commissioning, and working in partnership with our health colleagues, we can make a difference.”
