Returning to our roots in the care sector to celebrate success.

Following the success of recent years here at SSC, we have decided to return to our roots and are set to launch an exciting eight week programme for a new cohort of young learners keen to enter the Social Care sector. The course will begin early February and will highlight the foundations of the care sector and enable our learners to gain an initial insight into the healthcare sector. This will be a great kick start 2013 and to get recent and upcoming school leavers on the path to a new career.

With 942,000 people aged 16-24 unemployed between August and October 2012, there is a great demand for careers for the younger generation, and with on the job qualifications and starter courses for particular industries, the chances of a position with the course behind you gives the edge above other candidates to begin working within the Social Care sector.

Learners will begin the programme this week and will build their knowledge of fundamental factors that are present in the every day challenges that the care sector brings. Our course will allow learners to gain an opportunity that will enhance personal skills to be successful in the world of work, embracing the care industry with knowledge and skills that are transferable to the workplace.

The Government is raising the age permitted to leave education, due to research into young people that continue learning or training until they are 18, gaining larger incomes and a job of higher standards. By partaking upon courses and gaining the relevant qualifications to progress further in the industry, the lasting effects are much more successful.

The course is a great opportunity to gain an advantage upon others that are applying for posts in the world of work and ebbs the chances of employment above others that have applied. This will enable them to gain experience in the work place and will put them on the path to a career.
Here at SSC-Learning, we also provide courses for those within healthcare work placements and are interested in achieving their Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care. We are fully funded and have the ability to deliver the qualification through assessors visiting learners in the workplace, and the assessors arrange a routine meeting whereby there is an observation of the learners to collaborate and enhance their portfolios, and a chance to review coursework and to support learners within their careers.
