Cyrenians Care Academy - March 2018

19 March 2018

Great opportunity for people aged 18 or over who are unemployed, not in education or on the Work Programme, are living in Edinburgh and interested in getting a job in the Care sector. 

Delivered through Skills Development Scotland Employability Fund. 

Cyrenians Market Led Training are delighted to announce a Care course aimed at giving participants the knowledge, skills and confidence to pursue a career in care - a sector of growth within Edinburgh. 

The course provides training for anyone who is looking to work in residential, home care or support work. It was designed in partnership with care employers to ensure that the main areas of care that employers are looking for were covered. These include person-centred care, dementia awareness, adult safeguarding, administering medication, infection control, personal care and the National Care Standards. The course will also cover effective communication skills and personal effectiveness as well as employability skills such as CV development, interview skills and completing care application forms. 

The course is well established and respected throughout the city's care sector, employers recognise and trust the learning graduates take from the course and we have an excellent record of previous graduates moving into employment directly from the course. 

It is a ten-day course, followed by a two week work placement with a recruiting employer, and an interview. It is delivered at Norton Park, Albion Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5QY. 

The course will run from Monday 19 March - Thursday 29 March.

PVG (disclosure) applications will be paid for and submitted before the course starts.
