Good Care Month – Celebrate our amazing Health and Social Care Sector
In July there is national awareness around the Health and Social care sector. It is a month where we celebrate all the great work staff in Health and Social care do everyday for our loved ones. It also raises the social care profile, engaging and inspiring people to think about going into the Health and Social care sector. It is important to get involved and have the chance to recognise staff for their excellent standards of care and the support they provide. To show publicly what it is like to work in the care sector and help make informed decisions about careers in care. To boost staff morale and to nominate people who have helped a loved one.
The UK has an ageing population and more people will be needing care and additional support. People are also developing more complex health needs that require more support from the sector. To met the increasing demands on the Health and Social care sector, it is more important than ever to train and recruit staff.
For someone looking to go into Health and Social care there are a few different options. You could take a course that can provide you with the skills needed to start your career. You can gain an understanding of the range of services and roles in the Health and Social care sector. You can learn about safeguarding measures, the communication skills needed and the health and safety aspects of Health and Social care. Courses allow you to get an understanding and build your assurance before starting your practical Health and Social care training. With help and support from professional tutors, you can start your career with confidence. You could also become an apprentice and learn while working or you could go straight into an entry level role and be trained on the job.
