TLC Care Homes works with the Prince’s Trust and Colchester Institute for ‘Get into Healthcare’ Programme
TLC Care Homes, has been working alongside the Prince’s Trust, Colchester Institute and Health Education East of England once more to provide a programme for young people aged 18-30; providing an insight into the Health and Social Care industry.
After the success of the first programme, with all the applicants being offered a position with TLC Care Homes, we felt we would like to continue our support.
While on the course the group of young people participated in a classroom based activities which included video based assignments, as well as short courses such as First Aid. While TLC Care Homes provided Securicare training and a practical learning; which allowed the students to visit a TLC service and shadowed as support workers.
This month has seen four more young people being offered full time contracts with TLC Care Homes across East Anglia. With continued success of this programme another course will be running in October.
