Join our team of CHAPs.

Release your potential and develop your clinical skills, confidence and career in care.

As a Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP), you’ll combine your caring activities with an extended range of clinical skills, supporting our nurses to deliver the best care to residents in our homes.

The hands-on role includes skills such as administering medication, taking blood pressure, simple wound dressings and putting care plans into practice. As the link between our nursing and care teams, our CHAP programme empowers you to confidently develop your leadership skills.

Feeling supported

You’ll receive dedicated training from an experienced registered nurse who will mentor you throughout the CHAP programme (12 weeks minimum) using effective techniques like reflective practice to encourage continued use after qualifying.

You can also speak to other CHAPs though our e-leaning forum SOAR, at regular meetings and through the CHAP App which tracks your programme journey. Our team of CHAP leads are always on hand to offer guidance and advice, while you can feel reassured through our CHAP governance board. Find out more about available support in the video below.

Why not hear from some of our current CHAPs here, as they talk about their experience of the application and training process and working alongside the nurses in our homes.

There are a range of training routes available allowing you to tailor the programme to your interests, prior knowledge and skills. On successful completion of the programme qualified CHAPs attend a graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievement and welcome you to your new role.

  • 12 months experience as a Care Assistant
