Paragon Skills Learners’ Hired Through ‘Get into Healthcare’ Programme

Paragon Skills Learners’ Hired Through ‘Get into Healthcare’ Programme

We are delighted to share that all learners who participated in classes from 17th January to 4th February in our ‘Get into Healthcare’ Programme have been offered places within University Hospital Southampton, in partnership with NHS Trust.

The three week ‘Get Into Healthcare’ programme provides an entry-level into the care industry; equipping learners with a basic knowledge of the industry, focusing on various subjects such as person-centered care and understanding the role of a Healthcare Assistant. The course supports learners looking to start a career in the care industry and those that are looking to get back into healthcare.

Over the past 2 years, there has been an increasing interest and demand for healthcare workers; and there is more understanding than ever regarding how challenging yet rewarding a career in healthcare can be. Now, more than ever, it is so important to find learners passionate about the industry and willing to learn; this three week course gives learners a kickstart to beginning their journey into the care industry.

At the end of the three week course, running from 17th of January to 4th of February, learners on the course were given an opportunity to interview with the NHS Trust for a position at University Hospital Southampton; we are pleased to announce that feedback from University Hospital Southampton was overwhelmingly positive, with all learners on the course being offered a place.

From everyone at Paragon Skills, we would like to congratulate course leader Sam Brock and her learners on this amazing achievement; with thanks to NHS Trust and Prince’s Trust who offer their support to young people aged 16-30 looking to begin their careers. We wish these learners and future learners of the ‘Get into Healthcare’ programme all the best in their future careers in the care industry.
