City College Plymouth is proud to be a delivery partner for the Health & Social Care Skills Accelerator Programme (HSSAP).
HSSAP is funded through the European Social Fund and was developed by Devon County Council, in partnership with a consortium of all the Devon NHS trusts, further education providers, with representatives from local authorities, adult social care providers and primary care.
The HSSAP programme has been designed with the intention of upskilling existing staff within the health and social care sector, whilst working alongside care providers to recruit new individuals into the field. Therefore, the programme is also available to those not in employment who would like to gain skills in the health and social care sector.
Applications are welcomed from a wide variety of backgrounds. The programme will support older participants, those with a disability, applicants from minority backgrounds and single adult households to enter the profession.
