Health & Social Care Academy

Our Health & Social Care Academy aims to address skills gaps in the local area by training the next generation of health and social care professionals as well as upskilling those currently working in the sector.

Established with a £1m investment from the Town Deal and support from Warrington & Halton NHS Trust, Warrington Local Authority and many other stakeholders from the voluntary and private sectors, our Health & Social Care Academy provides students with a highly immersive learning environment and valuable industry placement opportunities. We work closely with local employers, health and social care settings and care providers in the Warrington region, identifying skills gaps and providing sector-specific training.
