Who we are
We empower people to go further in learning and in life, by recognising their uniqueness and by providing an environment which builds confidence and raises aspirations. We work with learners, experts in learning and business leaders to co-create curricula and build industry-relevant career pathways. Our focus on enterprise and entrepreneurship means that our students develop real-life business skills that give them the edge in a competitive jobs market.
The facilities are used by a range of different learners. Our full-time 16-18 year old students use the facility to help prepare them for careers in health and social care. Whereas our foundation degree students are already employed by the NHS and use the facility to learn new skills. The facilities are available to meet the staff training needs of local healthcare organisations as well as being open to local schools.
There is rising demand for care services as a result of an ageing population and the local authority’s strategy is focused on supporting people to live independently within their own homes.
“It is estimated that the social care workforce alone needs to grow by 750 new jobs every year to 2025 to keep pace with demand. Our care suite will help to attract more people to consider working in the sector, giving them an excellent preparation for their career, as well as developing the skills and expertise of those already employed by the NHS.”
The Care Suite an incredibly important facility for Oxfordshire. Equipping our health and social care teams with the essential skills and hands-on training they need is crucial to ensuring a positive future for care services throughout the county.”
The facilities supports training in areas of health and social care including dementia and end of life care, infection control, medication administration and wound care.
