Skills for Care has issued a reminder about the closing date of its one-year Graduate Management programme, on Monday 1 April.
The Graduate Management programme matches graduates with forward-thinking employers, offering invaluable experience in both social care and health settings and fast-tracks graduates into leadership roles.
The programme, which starts in October 2019, has been developed in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy, the Department of Health and Social Care and the sector’s employers who will host the graduates in their organisations across the country.
Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen said: “We will be facing many challenges in the coming years, so having an injection of fresh-thinking and new ideas will help the sector support the most vulnerable people in our communities.” Graduates are identified through a values-based recruitment and selection process.
During the one-year programme, graduates will contribute to the leadership and management of quality care across social care and health, and achieve two fully-funded qualifications.
Daniel Little joined The Good Care Group for his graduate placement last year, and has now accepted a permanent role at the organisation. He said: “I am back at my placement host organisation and I am undertaking care manager training – poised to take on the role that I have been so excited to get into all year.”
Who can apply?
The programme is open to graduates from any degree subject. They must:
- have graduated in the last seven years
- have/will have at least a 2:2 degree by September 2019
- have the right values and ambitions for a career in care.
Application is online.
