Free Training And Support If You Are Looking For a Job In The Care Sector

Community Skills for Care

There is a fantastic opportunity for free training for people looking for a job in the care sector but lack qualifications or need some extra support with job seeking.

Starting soon in Guildford is a free fully accredited three-week part-time course in health and social care. After the course, participants will then receive follow-up support to help them into paid work in the care sector.

What’s involved?

  • A two day introduction into the world of Health and Social Care
  • Then if you think working in a caring role is for you, you can go onto do further training that will give you a level 1 qualification to help you find work experience placements and to find a suitable paid role
  • Your travel expenses will be paid for you to attend the course.

If after the introductory two days you decide you don’t want to do the qualification you can still stay involved. We also need volunteer helpers to support people who need health and social care to become more active in their community. Full training for this role will be given.
