Course Overview

Talent 4 Care is a 5 week programme which is aimed at those wishing to gain work in the health and social care sector.  This could be in a hospital environment, care home, working as a home carer in the community or as a personal assistant.

Over 5 weeks (Monday to Thursday 10.00 am – 2.30 pm) you will study and gain 4 qualifications, all of which will help prepare you for work in this area. These are:

  • Level 1 Preparing to Working in Adult Social care
  • Level 1 Certificate in Well-being
  • Level 1 Introduction to Safeguarding (Certified Unit)
  • Level 1 Certificate in Job Search and Employment Potential

As part of the course you will also learn how to complete an application form, prepare covering letters and construct a CV, all of which will help you in your search for employment.  You will also be linked with key employers in the health and social care sector and have the opportunity to attend interviews for current live vacancies.

Much of the teaching will be conducted remotely. This means that you are able to study from home at the scheduled times with live teaching sessions delivered online. The tutor will also be available for daily support after the teaching has taken place and will guide you from the beginning to the completion of the programme.

You will attend the Health and Social Care Career Academy (Bickerstaffe House) for a 3 hour induction session and again once during the programme to complete your CV.  There are also 2 scheduled Friday workshops on weeks 2 and 4 for additional support.
