Dynamo Training Academy has had another successful year.

Our awards evening on the 19th July 2019 saw our talented young people all complete their programme and are all ready for the next steps in their careers.

This year the majority of our cadets have decided to move into the social care sectors with 60% supporting elderly care provision.  The rest have chosen to undertake teaching assistant apprenticeships and administration apprenticeships.

We are extremely proud of the support our Academy provides to local healthcare services who are desperately trying to meet the increasing patient demands placed upon them.  With an ageing population and a decrease in unemployment figures there aren’t enough people to meet the demand.

It is essential to encourage talented young people to join the healthcare sectors and develop careers towards becoming ‘Our Managers of the Future’.


What is the Academy Programme

Dynamo Healthcare Training Academy (DHCTA) has been set up to support young people in Cornwall to commence careers through Apprenticeships.  We offer a bridging programme for school leavers who don’t want to go to College for different reasons, but aren’t yet ready for employment or an apprenticeship. Funded by Cornwall Adult Education at Cornwall Council we offer a 9 months preparation to work/apprenticeship support programme as an alternative to College for school leavers.   

We prepare individuals for opportunities in Social Care, Clinical Health, Medical Reception, Customer Services, Administration and as Teaching Assistants.  Individuals learn the knowledge needed in our training center and the practical skills required within our simulation center.  Our Employability and Cadetship programme prepares young people for the working environment and for the Apprenticeship programme.

‘Joining the academy I had no hope in myself. 9 months forward brings us to today, our last day. Through this time I have had amazing teaching, support and encouragement. Our tutor delivers a variety of teaching strategies and will support you as much as possible. To anyone thinking of health and social care, consider here! I can’t recommend it enough, I will miss it dearly.
