We were proud to sponsor the award for Developing a Regional Curriculum at last night’s CDN College Awards 2017.
The award recognises how colleges are developing a coherent and relevant curriculum which is responsive to the needs of the region, is learner-focused and aligned to employer demands and sustainability.
Ayrshire College scooped the award for its Prepares to Care programme a unique sector-leading, employer-led programme which addresses health and social care integration, in line with Scottish Government’s 2020 vision.
Ayrshire College is unique in providing the programme, which is flexible and meets the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) requirements to develop the skills required to deliver integrated health and social care.
The programme is also aligned to the local authorities’ induction programme and is a robust delivery of academic and vocational learning.
The programme has been successful in helping the local authorities to address the recruitment and retention needs in Ayrshire in the health and social care sector, by identifying integrated solutions.
