Revalidation support

Swiis provide access to a wide range of support and training which will aide proof of your continued development and compliance to the revalidation requirements. Swiis also offer professional guidance in helping you to collate all of the required ‘evidence’ for the revalidation process.

Clinical Skills Training (CPD)

Swiis run training days 3-4 a year which award a certificate and give hours towards your revalidation.

Our training and development programme is designed to meet the needs of our agency workers, the NHS, and the private sector healthcare clients we support.

The NHS contracts are very stringent in terms of the training which we are required to provide to our agency nurses, therefore we have no manoeuvrability in respect of what training we require to be undertaken.

All healthcare workers have access to a full range of FREE mandatory training before they complete their registration. If any required training has been undertaken previously by yourself and can be evidenced (and it meets the criteria) you will not be required to repeat this. Training is updated annually and keeps our workers skilled and available for work.

Training certificate

Appropriately training you enables us to place you in work quickly and efficiently, but it also plays a vital part in your continued professional development, making sure you have the right skills for the roles we offer.

A member of the healthcare support team will advise you from the outset about any specific training you will require and the timing required for you to undertake this. Your proactive commitment to training will quickly ready you for work and subsequently offer you a wide range of work opportunities, and maintain and enhance your own professional development.

Continuing Professional Development

Swiis run CPD (Continuing Professional Development) days every 3-4 times a year in London, Birmingham and Bristol. These days are arranged via Bespoke Training Services and with this, nurses can express their interest in certain courses, we will then find the most popular courses and arrange these with Bespoke with 2 training sessions per day. Along with being awarded the certificate, the CPD hours accrued will go towards their revalidation (completed every 3 years).
