Getting Skills for a Career In Care.
Paige registered with us on 14th July and mentioned she had an interest in care. On completing application forms for Caledonia Care, Key and North Ayrshire Council, Craig assisted Paige with creating a CV within 1 week and introduced Paige to Jacqueline for support through our Care Academy. Paige then moved onto obtaining the skills needed to work in the care sector.
During the time we supported Paige through the Care Academy she also attended our applications and interview skills workshops and gained various care qualifications. These include: Dignity and Privacy, Health and Safety in a care setting and Safeguarding Adults. Paige also received one to one support from Jacqueline with Applications and interviews.
On completion of the training outlined and support provided, Paige was successful in getting a “Care Assistant” position with Caledonia Care. We also provided support with writing an acceptance letter.
Paige has been a pleasure for both Jacqueline and Craig to work with. They are really pleased with her progress and delighted to hear she is now in a position that she is excited to start.
