CACHE Centre Barnsley College is celebrating being an award finalist

Barnsley College’s Health, Science and Social Care Professions department is celebrating being a finalist in the Skills for Care’s Accolades 2017.

Barnsley College works in partnership with Leeds City Council, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Wheatfields Hospice. They worked collectively to launch the Integrated Apprenticeship programme and were finalists in the Most Effective Approach to Integration and New Models of Care Award.

The Integrated Apprenticeship is a twelve month training programme that allows apprentices to study in a healthcare, clinical and a social care setting before choosing their specialist area to complete a longer work placement. This allows the apprentices to gain a unique insight and work experience in a variety of settings before focusing on one particular pathway. CACHE qualifications are awarded as part of the Integrated Apprenticeship.

Lee Pryor, Head of Health Sciences and Social Care Professions at Barnsley College, said: “This innovative partnership has been really successful and we are delighted to have that recognised at this prestigious award ceremony. It’s important that training providers work with care providers from different settings so that the next cohort of care professionals have the skills required.”
