Developing Cornwall’s Healthcare Workforce for the Future

Skills Your Way

Skills Your Way

Skills Your Way offers young people in Cornwall, who are disengaged (or at risk of disengaging) from education, employment and training, access to support appropriate to their individual needs. This includes a personalised information, advice and guidance and skills assessment. Participants are also offered support to overcome any potential barriers, as well as access to skills programmes and coaching to help them move into and remain in sustainable education, employment or training.

Dynamo Healthcare Training also offers support to help participants re-engage in education or training programmes where needed.

Dynamo Healthcare Training aims to address any issues that may be preventing young people from engaging effectively in education, employment and training through offering young person-centred support through our workshop programmes providing support for those with social, emotional and mental health needs as well as those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

Dynamo Healthcare Training runs an Access To Work in Healthcare course which aims to build confidence, teach new skills and help the participants gain employment in the health and social care sectors when they are ready. Our tutor helps participants to prepare for work, apply for a job and get an interview. Dynamo Healthcare Training also has links with many health and social care employers throughout Cornwall, so can link the participants with prospective employers.

Young People Next Steps Programme

As part of the Skills Your Way project, Dynamo Healthcare Training is working with local schools to deliver the Young People Next Steps Programme workshop, which is to support students who are unsure about what they want to do after Year 11. Following the stresses of the pandemic, deciding next steps can be daunting.

The workshops are delivered in either 1-1 or group sessions to meet the students needs, giving advice and skills on how to explore different careers in all sectors. Once the workshop is completed there is ongoing support for the students to make sure they are fully prepared for their next steps after Year 11.
