Staff and volunteers working in health and care organisations across the Humber and North Yorkshire area are being offered the chance to gain new skills and qualifications through fully funded courses with DN Colleges Group.
The Humber and North Yorkshire (HNY) Health and Care Partnership, an integrated care system (ICS) made up of all health, care, local authority and voluntary organisations across the Humber and North Yorkshire, has partnered with DN Colleges Group to offer courses relevant to both clinical and non-clinical job roles.
A bespoke learning portal has been built for health and care staff and volunteers, offering courses at academic levels 1, 2 and 3 equating to GCSE and A-Level qualifications.
Jayne Adamson, Executive Director of People, Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, said “There are approximately 1,000 qualifications on offer, giving staff, teams and volunteers a superb opportunity to gain further knowledge in areas relating to their own job, but also to help with skills development and career progression in the future.”
“We’re really excited about this partnership with DN Colleges Group to offer fully funded distance learning courses; to upskill our workforce, develop them for the future, and to support our people to attain their personal academic goals.”
Dan Wilson, Group Executive Director, DN Colleges Group, said “Our ambition is to help transform our communities through learning, so having the opportunity to support health and care staff and volunteers with learning new skills is fantastic.”
“Anyone can apply for a place, subject to funding eligibility and availability; if you work in health and care across Humber and North Yorkshire then you could be learning new skills and gaining new experiences through our courses. All courses are accredited and provide a nationally recognised qualification.”
