Apprenticeships in the Healthcare sector
The Training Arm has implemented a successful Health & Social Care apprenticeship vacancies marketing campaign that resulted in over 50 apprenticeship starts with the following employers; Edenvale, Look Ahead, Vincent Care Plus and Focus Care.
NHS Central London Clinical Commissioning Group
By engaging with the NHS Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (which looks after all the GP surgeries in central London) CCCT have been selected as their provider of choice for GP surgeries looking to recruit apprentices. CCCT has started working with four GP surgeries and a few more are in the pipeline. A new area the College is looking to expand into are with doctor surgeries to deliver Health and Social Care for their Health Care Assistants.
CCCT is also working with 26 independent pharmacies within the boroughs of Camden, Islington and Haringey in order to recruit young local residents to start a career within the pharmaceutical industry.
European Social Funding
The Training Arm has secured a new ESF contract to work with a Prime Contractor, JGA Group to deliver the ESF Skills Development in Health and Social Care contract for the Central and South London Boroughs. The services delivered will include providing bespoke support and training for the unemployed and those economically inactive and seeking a return to the labour market but face skills related barriers to entering the health and social care sector. CCCT will be delivering the vocationally related skills that will help to respond to changes in health and social care policy such as integrated care which impacts upon employers. The eligible candidates for this ESF project will be able to tackle their barriers to work, enter and sustain employment, and achieve a full Level 2 or 3 qualification. The new contact is worth £390,000.
