Once you’re working in care, there are lots of opportunities to develop your skills and progress your career.

There are a range of qualifications, including certificates or diplomas, offered by the two main colleges in Cornwall – Cornwall College and Truro and Penwith College.

Apprenticeships, including for existing employees, are offered by these mainstream colleges and also by a number of other training providers who provide an alternative to college. Cornwall Apprenticeships have produced a directory of Apprenticeship training providers in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

Details of other training providers can be found on the Skills for Care website and the CAHSC TICK review programme.
