Skills development and career

Skills development – a strategic focus

Every year, about 5,000 Ambea employees – one fifth of our employees – take part in some type of competence-raising initiative with Ambea’s internal training organisation Lära. This training is strategically important, partly to ensure high-quality care, but also to create opportunities for our employees to continuously develop in their professional roles.

A distinctive feature of Lära is the focus on knowledge that makes a difference for employees in their everyday work. This could include dementia care certification for the entire facility, training in OHS, the low-arousal approach, diet and nutrition, or other topics that are relevant on an everyday basis.

All of Lära’s instructors have long experience in clinical patient care, giving them unique insight into the everyday experience of our employees.

Career with Ambea

Ambea is a major employer with many opportunities for employees to develop, make a career or switch roles within the Group. Employees can become a manager, take on the role of an expert at a unit or switch to another workplace or staff function at the head office.

Manager positions. Ambea strives to recruit most of our managers internally. The reasons are to give employees an opportunity to stay and make a career with us, and to take advantage of skills and achieve a smoother transition when new managers step into their position.
Expert in a unit. Care workers may also be responsible for a specific area of expertise at their workplace, such as dementia, diet, activities or set of values. They receive additional training in their field and then, alongside of their ordinary duties, provide support for their colleagues and manager in their area of expertise.
