Cyrenians Care Academy – September 2019

Delivered through Skills Development Scotland Employability Fund

Cyrenians Market Led Training are delighted to announce a Care course aimed at giving participants the knowledge, skills and confidence to pursue a career in care – a sector of growth within Edinburgh.

The course provides training for anyone who is looking to work in residential, home care or support work. It was designed in partnership with a number of care employers to ensure that the main areas of care that employers are looking for were covered. These include person-centred care, dementia awareness, adult safeguarding, administering medication, infection control, personal care and the National Care Standards.

The course will also cover effective communication skills and personal effectiveness as well as employability skills such as CV development, interview skills and completing care application forms.

The course is well established and respected throughout the city’s care sector, employers recognise and trust the learning graduates take from the course and we have an excellent record of previous graduates moving into employment directly from the course.

It is a ten-day course, delivered at Norton Park, Albion Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5QY, followed by a two week work placement, with a recruiting employer, and an interview.
