Health and Social Care
It takes especially caring and resilient people to work and succeed in this physically and emotionally demanding employment sector. With a big shortage of qualified social workers in Walsall and across the country, there has never been a better time to join this fast growing sector. Whether your interest is in the care and support of children or the elderly, in home-based care, working in a public or private care setting or working with people with special learning needs, W.A.C.C can help you develop the skills and qualities required to be successful in this highly valued area of work.
At W.A.C.C we work very closely with employers in the Health and Social Care industry. They tell us they are seeking people who are fundamentally caring with good listening and communication skills, well organised and able to work as a member of an integrated team.
This sector is changing fast as people become more empowered to make their own decisions about the care they receive and how it is paid for. Therefore, our students learn how to communicate, plan and deliver a service as a self-employed or agency based care professional.
