Learning, Leading and Growing

As the Kind Care Company, we are proud to support our Colleagues to grow and develop their skills to deliver the kindest possible care to our Residents.

Our Learning and Development team are here to help you enhance your abilities, increase your career prospects, and help ensure you can confidently contribute towards delivering high quality care.

At HC-One, we recognise that Colleagues learn in different ways and that continuous learning needs to be interesting, accessible and, where possible, individualised. Therefore, as part of our team, you will benefit from many different approaches and rewarding opportunities to support your development as you move along your journey with us.

Apprenticeship journeys

HC-One apprenticeships are offered to both newly recruited and existing colleagues to help develop their skills, knowledge and confidence as they enjoy a rewarding career in the care sector.

As part of the programme, HC-One is supporting over 900 colleagues across England, Scotland and Wales to complete an apprenticeship programme within the next two to three years.
