Purpose of the Project
The project is designed to assist candidates to get a job in the dynamic and rewarding Care Industry. It covers the basics that you need to know, to be prepared for, and to be ready for, a job in the Care Industry. You will receive an induction, and a week of training, and you will also get at least one guaranteed interview in a care home/ domiciliary agency.
Structure of the Project
The programme is an official JCP Sector Based Work Academy, with JCP, Southend – on- Sea Borough Council (SBC) SBC and SAAC (The Southend Adult Community College) all working together. The programme runs over 3/4 weeks, with an Induction day in week one, a one week “Preparation for Care” course, and a guaranteed job interview in week three or week four. The project runs twice per year. All candidates get at least one guaranteed interview for an actual job.
A range of about 12 Care Homes and Domiciliary Care Agencies take part in the project, almost all based in Southend. The Homes and Domiciliary Care Agencies that take part change slightly each time.
The candidates are mainly recruited by the JCP Southend. SBC also recruits in order to try to get the maximum numbers are each session.
An induction week takes place in the first week, to allow all attendees to find out more about working in Care, and attendees also get to hear from between 4 and 12 Care Homes and Agencies – to find out more about working in this area. This takes place online and is Covid Secure.
