Warrington & Vale Royal College is thrilled to be officially opening the doors to its brand-new Health & Social Care Academy this October
With thanks to a £1million investment from Warrington Town’s Fund and significant support from key partners including Warrington Local Authority, Warrington & Halton NHS Trust, the University of Chester, employers and many other stakeholders from voluntary sector organisations, the Health & Social Academy will closely align with the aspirations and employment needs of the sector.
The academy, based at Warrington campus, contains a simulation hospital ward, an independent living flat and specialist dementia training resources. These facilities, combined with top-grade teaching from experienced tutors, will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to enjoy a rewarding career in the sector. Strong employer partnerships are already being established, which will provide students with fruitful opportunities for professional development and progression.
