Our core values are at the heart of all that we do.

Thabo Nkosi

As an International Healthcare Assistant applicant from South Africa, this online training was very useful as I was able to learn specific communication techniques in connection to the British culture. I also enjoyed the interactive assessments which made the course more engaging. I will also consider enrolling onto the Part 2 training.

Yetty Balogun

I just finished completing this course and found all the resources helpful and the exercises were interesting and fun. The course was also user friendly and straightforward. I would recommend taking this course and registering with Carest Recruitment.

Lucy Mwangi

The course took me around 2 hours to complete because I wanted to take my time and understand all the units carefully. I was also attracted to the course and the profile of Carest Recruitment because now that I have completed the course, I am able to receive first hand updates on upcoming sponsorships.
