Free care courses launch

A new free course is launching in Norfolk to help people find out more about a career in health and social care.

Care Start is running at the School of Nursing at the College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn.

It runs one morning a week for six weeks and successful candidates receive a Level 2 Care Of The Elderly award which aims to help them move into a role in health and social care.

The first course is already under way, with more running in April and November.

What happen on the course?

Tutors are supported by guest speakers, and people who have real experience of being part of a care environment.

The course also prepares those taking part for the Care Certificate which people will need if they want a role in the sector.

The course is being offered as part of The Apollo Project, a two-year programme to support the recruitment and retention of staff in coastal and rural areas of East Anglia for health and social care.

Although the course is running in King’s Lynn, there are other options and sites available across the region as well as the College of West Anglia.
