Are you interested in a career caring for others?

Being Well HSC

Being Well Health and Social Care Academy aims to support homecare providers across the city in their recruitment and retention. Taking a collaborative approach to this challenge with partners from across the sector we have developed a four week learning course that is aimed at helping you find out if a career in Social Care is for you. 

We will provide

  • Q&A's with care professionals
  • Knowledge needed for the care certificate
  • Online tutor led sessions using Google classroom
  • Free Disclosure Barring Service
  • Guaranteed interview with a local care provider
  • Interview preparation

We launched a pilot academy in June 20 - here are what some of those involved had to say

‘I enjoyed the course; I believe it has been a success on my behalf. I have done other courses in the past which were face to face but the online tools from the care academy allowed me to go at my own pace which I preferred. it would be good if other sectors offered courses like this’ – learner

'We feel honoured to be a part of the Health and Social Care Academy. We found the pilot intake incredibly useful and have since employed students from the Academy' - Home Care Provider

“A pleasure to be involved in tutoring on the pilot course, really enjoyed it” – Tutor
