Why Choose Social Care?

A career in social care offers rewarding, long-term employment prospects, with opportunity for promotion and progression as well as job security. Adult social care is one of the few sectors where jobs are increasing, offering significant numbers of long-term career opportunities in the current job market.

There are many roles available depending on what you want to do, who you want to work with and where you’d like to work. Somewhere in your community, there’s a job that you can do to help others.

 

On Tues 26th November 2019 the Care Hero's Team held a workforce and careers event for students attending Herefordshire & Ludlow College and Herefordshire Sixth Form college who are working towards qualification's in Health Social Care!

 The Purpose of the event was:

• To raise the awareness of career opportunities within Health and Social Care

• To raise the profile of Care in Herefordshire

• To support people to navigate the different routes and pathways across the sector

• To gain confidence in applying for roles with local employers and organisations

• To share the values and ethos of working in the sector within Herefordshire and beyond

• To contribute to support providers in recruitment

 Students took part in a range of workshops and activities that included:

• Interactive Sessions

• Learning about Career Pathways

• Listening to Guest Speakers

• Health & Social Care Myth Busting

• Meeting with potential employers from across the sector

The event was a huge success with many of the students securing role specific part time employment to coincide with their studies!
