Keeping our Care workers safe through Covid-19

In just two months, since the outbreak of Covid-19, Knights Absorb has trained over 2000 care workers in crucial life-saving skills. This training has provided vital knowledge for support staff to both care and save the lives of vulnerable residents in Care Homes during the current crisis.

The training areas delivered by Knights Absorb’s expert instructors have included safeguarding, mental health, medication, clinical procedures, suicide prevention, fire safety, CPR and life support. With social distancing, all training has been delivered remotely with a focus on getting new care workers the skills and knowledge to carry out their jobs safely and effectively.

Sarah Morgan, Academy Manager from The Priory Group, a national provider of care, cites the partnership with Knights Absorb as an integral part of the organisations’ success at minimising Covid-19 cases within their care homes:

“It has been a pleasure working with Knights Absorb to set up our Virtual Classroom training. Knights were not only highly supportive but also found solutions proactively and effectively, enabling us to provide life-saving learning within a short timeframe. They were always available to provide support and advice.”

On Knights Absorb’s success in delivering effective training, founder Steve van de Worp said

“As a training business, we have moved from physical to virtual classroom rapidly to support care workers at this difficult time. Our instructors continue to deliver vital skills and knowledge in an impactful and engaging manner.”

“Going forward, we will continue to support the critical work of care workers by delivering any training requirements virtually both rapidly and conveniently.”

Four Seasons Healthcare Group

We had an urgent need to provide training in Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) across our business as a result of the challenges experienced during the first critical months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Knights Absorb worked with us to define a training solution that could be delivered in a ‘Covid-Safe’ manner that would enable us to reach our teams at our target sites within a tight time frame. They trained 277 of our team members across a 6 week period, providing the reassurance we needed to keep our teams and residents safe as well ensuring we were meeting regulatory requirements. The trainers were professional and sensitive to the needs of our homes at all times, and the feedback from everyone who attended the training has been fantastic.

United Response

Knights are now our preferred provider. The quality of training that Knights provides is exceptional. When it comes to Customer Service, Knights excel, in the many years of partnering with multiple companies, Knights are head and shoulders above the rest. Never phased by challenges that clients provide, Knights naturally deal with the issues, assess the need and make the correct decision for the customer. This is not to say they bend over or wilt when challenged, quite the opposite, they seem to scope issues and resolve them efficiently, a customer service ethic that is quite rare. Keep up the good work guys, it is noticed and appreciated.


Knights don’t use generic trainers but find the best trainer for the course and client. The trainers are specialists in their fields and have practitioner experience which I feel is always important when delivering to staff. Trainers discuss our needs before attending training and revise training to meet specific needs.


Knights have personalised courses to meet our learning and development needs. As predominately a learning disability/Autism provider we require trainers and courses that reflect these specific needs and Knights have delivered on this. All courses have met our requirements fully

Modus Care

Knights Training are an organisation that are easy to work with, reliable, operate a competitive straight forward pricing structure, offer an impressive range of courses and employ good quality trainers who have expert subject knowledge, certainly an organisation that I would recommend.
