Yeovil College and Yeovil District Hospital (Yeovil NHS Foundation Trust) have joined forces to open the country’s first Health and Care Career College, with September 2015 marking its first student intake.
The partnership ensures that all students studying through the new Career College are offered the perfect mix of specialist training through a current curriculum, backed up by high quality, relevant work experience.
Students study a variety of healthcare roles including Health and Social Care, Clinical Health and Early Years as part of the Career College. This pioneering project also hopes to attract students into new health-care roles associated with technology – and its use by patients to monitor their own conditions. Yeovil’s Career College is the first in the NHS to recognise this trend and aim to fulfil these newly created roles.
