“No matter how your day has gone or what’s going on outside, you’ve got someone saying thank you and 52 other people to be positive and strong for giving you a massive smile. I really enjoyed it and interacting with the group. The Care Academy gave me the confidence to try care and made me understand that I had transferable skills from previous employment that I never would have thought of, I had butterflies on my first day but everyone was so welcoming, I would say to other people to give it a go. It’s a job but not a job, you go home feeling good.”

Wayne, Care Assistant at Moorhaven home at Somerset Care, completed the Somerset Care Academy in December and has recently progressed to being a Key Worker for three residents. Wayne was unemployed for 18 months previous to the academy. He wasn’t sure about care as a career to start with, but he found the academy to be brilliant as it allowed him to get a real taste of what it is like to work in care, it involved workshop learning that followed with a shadowing placement.

You could progress a career in adult social care, just like Wayne. You can develop your current skills and learn new ones.
