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.
The Academy will be delivered through a 2 stage process over 2 years, including:
As healthcare Cadets in the first stage, young people will be given the opportunity to research different healthcare services and client groups to determine what role is best suited to them. They will learn the foundation knowledge needed for all healthcare roles.
Not only will they be provided with the knowledge and skills they need for their roles, they will undertake values assessments and regular skills assessments within our simulation centre to ensure they can support clients/patients with the dignity and respect they deserve. Students will complete 20 hours voluntary placement and we will work with Volunteer Cornwall to support this within various healthcare associated roles. Students will also meet lots of different employers and client groups to try and decide which role they would like to train for in the second stage. 2 weekly work placements are also included in this stage.
Please view information about the Cadet stage
As healthcare Apprentices in the second stage you will undertake a 12 month paid programme, while working in a role for an employer. You will receive one to one support from an occupationally competent tutor assessor in the workplace and provided with all the support you need to achieve your apprenticeship.
At the end of the Apprenticeship you will receive all the support and advice they need for career progression within their choose area.
