A new paid introduction to care course has been launched making it easier than ever for local job seekers to start a rewarding role in adult social care.

In uncertain times, care work offers guaranteed employment and the chance to climb the career ladder.

Pursuing a career in care in North Lincolnshire unlocks exclusive benefits, including free childcare and health and wellbeing memberships, all while making a massive difference to the lives of local residents.

The two-week course, which is being delivered in partnership with Ongo Recruitment, is the perfect opportunity for people to learn the skills necessary to secure a care job, or refresh their knowledge, all while being paid.

Course participants study content from the care certificate and join practical, face to face training including moving with dignity and medication.

There will also be the opportunity to learn on the job and shadow care professionals.

Those who complete the course will then be matched with local care jobs and fast tracked into employment.

All participants on the first course have now secured a job with a local care provider and spoke positively of their experience.

Awarding the course a five-star rating, one participant said:

“The training helped us to have more of an understanding of the care sector and was beneficial to everyone who has a passion for care”.

Others used the course to brush up their knowledge.

“Even though I worked in care over 20 years ago, the training has been beneficial as so much has changed. The trainer has been so supportive”, another participant added.
