Learn everything you need to get started in health and care

Get a head start working in health and care with the Adult Skills and Community Learning training course in February.  

If you’re interested in working in the health and care sector, but you don’t have the experience to move straight into a role, this course could be a perfect starting point for you.  

Our next health and care training course will start on Monday 19 February. The course runs for five weeks. Classes take place five days a week from Monday to Friday, starting at 9.30am to 2.30pm.  

One of the learners who took the course last year told us: I've learnt so much on this course. Things like care values and legislation are important things I didn’t know about. It’s surprising how many of my current skills I’ve been able to use and develop in this training. I wanted to get more on my CV to help me get a job in care and now I can.” 

The sessions take place in Barnsley, with classroom activities at Wellington House, Wellington Street, Barnsley, S70 1WA. If you’d like to find out more information, please email AdultLearning@barnsley.gov.uk. Or you can call (01226) 775270.  

Proud to Care Barnsley 

As well as training, Proud to Care Barnsley is helping more people to unlock the possibilities of working in health and care. Take a look at some of our activity and support: 

  • Hear from the people who are Proud to Care – watch our playlist on YouTube to hear from people in Barnsley that enjoy working in the sector.  
  • Engaging recruitment events – we’re working with organisations across Barnsley to help you learn more about working in health and care, like last year’s ‘We Care Into The Future’ event. 
  • Get Started in Care we're working with the Prince’s Trust to support more young people aged 18 to 30 who are looking to move into health and care roles. Our dedicated mentor is here to help you with everything from job searching and applications to getting ready for interviews.
