MWI Celebrates City & Guilds Graduates in Learning Disability

Nine nurse aides graduated from the City & Guilds Certificate in “Working with People Who Have Learning Disability” at the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute (MWI) on Wednesday 10 March 2010.

The graduates are Alexandra Bean, Maria Burgess, Sandra Butterfield, Tyeasha Cameron, Shirley Jacobs, Devena James, Regina Smith, Durroni Philpott, Tammy Thompson.

City & Guilds is the UK’s leading vocational qualification awarding body, offering more than 500 qualifications in over 28 industry sectors, through 8,500 approved centres in around 100 countries. Following an on-site review by City & Guilds representatives in 2005, MWI was approved to become a City & Guilds Assessment Centre for working with people who have Learning Disabilities. This status was reconfirmed in 2009 for an additional three years, following the regular required evaluation by a City & Guilds External Verifier.

“We are extremely pleased to be celebrating the success of nine of our nursing aides in the Learning Disability area,” says Patrice Dill, Chief Operating Officer. “At MWI we are committed to providing the highest quality service to our Learning Disability clients and we are very proud to be able to offer this certification to our staff as a City & Guilds Assessment Centre. Over half of our nurse aides have now gone through the programme. It is a great development opportunity that further improves this important service.”

Learning Disability Clinical Director, Mr Michael Murray, adds: “Learning Disability at MWI is an exciting and evolving programme, providing both day care and residential services for people in Bermuda with Learning Disabilities. Educational development supports our staff and ensures a constant raising of the bar as we work towards de-institutionalising our service, which means providing more group home residences to ensure a more home-like environment for the people we care for.”
