Reducing your agency spend…
Our 4-week, flagship My Care Portfolio (MCP) SBWA programme in partnership with our Sister company Embark Learning Care Academy, has been established for several years now and has excellent progression rates into sustained employment. The programme was designed by employers in the care sector to help meet their work force development requirements, whilst preparing candidates for a rewarding career in care.
The programme is largely adaptable and designed around the Care Certificate. It includes accredited qualifications such as:
- NCFE L2 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care
- NCFE L2 Information Communication Technology for Employment
- Highfield L1 Certificate in Introduction to Health, Social Care and Children's and Young People's Settings
MCP is highly practical and utilises our state of the art ‘Skills Lab’, which provides an environment that allows people to experience the day in the life of a Carer, with profile bed, full scale patient care manikin, hoists, stand aids, medication trolleys and a fully equipped medical kit to suit all clinical needs.
A key element of the MCP programme is the work experience element, which provides the new carer with a work placement in a care home, shadowing an experienced care professional. This provides the learner a real taste of working in care and sets them up for their first encounter in a care setting.
