Caremark welcomed its largest ever group of new franchisees to the network earlier in the month.
Six new franchisees recently completed their initial franchisee training and are now awaiting registration with the Care Quality Commission which will allow them to open their doors and trade.
The new business owners have taken territories across the UK further expanding Caremark’s reach into the local home care market.
Joining the network are:
- Herkesh Malhi – Caremark (Birmingham South)
- Baljit & Jugjeet Bains – Caremark (Havering)
- Arshad Farid – Caremark (Calderdale)
- Vasilis Koutlakis, Abir Altali who join Ahsan Sajjad (existing franchisee of Caremark (Dacorum and St. Albans) in taking Caremark (North Herts & Stevenage)
New franchisees undergo comprehensive in-house training at Caremark’s head office which gives them a thorough grounding in the care sector, the complex legislation that underpins it and Caremark’s model, giving them a solid foundation from which to start their new business.
Reflecting on the course Baljit Bains said: “We found the training to be extremely informative and enjoyable.
“The delivery of the content was excellent. We have learnt a lot and we are looking forward to applying our new knowledge and training to our business.”
Being back in a classroom environment can be quite challenging for some who may not have undergone any structured learning since University or even school days. However, Caremark’s training is designed to meet all learning styles, so that by the time the students come to sit their end of course exam, they are well equipped to sit the testing 2 hour examination.
The next weeks waiting for their CQC registration will be spent marketing their forthcoming service within their local community, as well as making contact with key stakeholders in their area.
“As new business owners we are most excited about being able to generate work for our local community and to making a difference to the lives of our local elderly folk,” Baljit concluded.
