RAISING EXCELLENCE AND ASPIRATION IN CARE AND HEALTH

across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

REACH Cornwall (part of the ESF Business Clusters) is an employer-led initiative for the social care, healthcare and early years sectors in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

We believe those working in these sectors do an amazing job. However, there are simply not enough people, with the right skills, to meet the ever-growing need for these services. Find out more about our project and how we can work together to identify and address skill shortages, make training more accessible, develop clearer career pathways and promote the sector.

Training and Events

REACH Cornwall has delivered over 100 workshops, webinars, short courses and other events providing funded training to 1,000+ individuals from 130 different organisations in response to needs identified by social care, healthcare and early years providers. We are thrilled to have secured funding as part of the ESF Business Clusters project to continue until summer 2023. This means we can develop more innovative solutions to meet the growing and changing training needs of the sector.  And for this phase, we will be widening our scope to include SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises) offering early years provision in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Since the end of March 2020, all our training and events have taken place online. 

We intend to start a very gradual return to offering some face to face learning opportunities but for the remainder of this year at least, the vast majority of this training will continue online. Take a look at some of the Training and Events we have run to date or check out the Health, Social Care and Childcare Brochure for any REACH Cornwall developed training and courses running through Truro and Penwith College. If there is sufficient interest, and it is practical to do so, we are open to rerunning or adapting some of these sessions again so do get in touch to find out more.
