Health & Social Care Academy (HSCA)

Our new 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.

Thanks to a £1m investment from the Town Deal, Warrington campus is now home to a Health & Social Care Academy. Established with support from Warrington & Halton NHS Trust, Warrington Local Authority and many other stakeholders from the voluntary and private sectors, our facilities meet the demands and needs of the industry. This exciting new facility will 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.

Students joining our college from September 2022 will study in our state-of-the-art Health & Social Care Academy - a regional centre of excellence.

Those wishing to pursue a career in the health and social care sector can enjoy studying in this immersive learning environment. Students will have the opportunity to undertake valuable work placements, benefitting from working with established professionals.
