Townfield offer Diploma’s in Health & Social Care

Care Assistants Sign up for Diploma’s in Health & Social Care

Learn Direct were at Townfield and Coach House today to sign up some of the new carers to their Diplomas in Health & Social Care and also check on the progress of some of the existing learners.

This nationally recognised qualification proves you can deliver health and social care to a required standard. The training is designed to teach you how to deliver an excellent level of care, develop a clear understanding of your specific role and responsibilities, create a safe and healthy environment for yourself and those you care for, and have your achievements acknowledged.

Kath the registered manager at Townfield and Coach House said “Its fantastic for the carers to be able to extend their knowledge beyond the training that we provide in our care academy. Health & Social Care has changed over the years and now it is being seen as a good career choice either as a foundation for a nursing career or to progress in the social care sector”

If you are interested in starting a career in Health & Social Care and wish to apply to join our team then you can fill in an application form online, call in to collect one or download one to complete in your own time.
