College hosts Health and Social Care seminar

Macclesfield College of Further and Higher Education recently held a successful seminar for people who work in the Health and Social sector. The event was an opportunity for anyone who is a manager in a care home or has a leadership role in Health and Social Care to find out more about the range of sector-specific training available from the College.

Along with enjoying the chance to network over afternoon tea and cakes served in the College’s Silk Room Restaurant, the delegates also learnt about support for care homes residents with dementia from guest speakers Deborah Hutchinson and Sian Harrison from the Dementia End of Life (EOL) Practice Development Team.

Dawn Ridehalgh, Head of Trade Services and Apprenticeships at Macclesfield College, commented, “It’s really important that anyone working in the Health and Social Care sector is equipped with up-to-date skills and knowledge and has the correct qualifications that are required by legislation. We offer a wide range of courses and apprenticeship training especially designed to help develop the careers of people working in the sector – and this event was the perfect opportunity for individuals to find out more.”

She continued, “I would like to thank all the attendees and guest speakers who participated in the event and look forward to building further links with them in the future.”
