Launch your Healthcare Career
Dynamo Healthcare Training Academy (DHTA) is a specialist provider dedicated to supporting young people to commence careers in healthcare, through excellent employer partnerships and focused training and development to meet specific roles.
Dynamo Training Academy
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 Teaching Assistant. 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.
We work closely with employers to ensure that our curriculum is fit for purpose and our Cadets are suitable and effective by the time they become paid Apprentices. We encourage employers to work in partnership with us to ensure we meet their needs with regards to recruitment, training and workforce development.

The Academy is based in a business environment in Hayle, Cornwall, however we do support employers across Cornwall. Students are given a DHCTA tunic to wear from their first year and expected to present themselves in a professional capacity as they would in a job.
This is not the same provision as College, it is a Preparation for Work.
Students undertake a 2 stage process that will help them achieve good earning potential and career planning. They complete a cadetship, with embedded employability, work and practical skills that will prepare them for their chosen apprenticeship. They have full support throughout to help them realise their potential and future career aspirations.
