From education to employment

National Training provider ranked top in health and social care

A national training provider based in Staffordshire has been recognised as Top Employer for Health and Social Care at The School Leaver Awards 2018, thanks to its innovative approach to developing and training health and social care apprentices.

BB Training Academy, which also placed 53rd in the AllAboutSchoolLeavers Top 100 Employers for School & College Leavers 2018, offers life time support to the care sector, with courses and apprenticeships in health and social care and childcare.

It specialises in delivering quality training that helps develop learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviours to ensure they provide outstanding care, while reaching their own potential.

Organised by All About School Leavers, the awards celebrate employers that provide their workforce with opportunities to upskill and a clear path for progression. The winners in each category were selected based on the opinions and ratings of apprentices and school leaver trainees from 100 UK organisations.

BB Training Academy CEO Fay Gibbin said; “It feels really great to know that our apprentices and trainees rate our programmes, training and support so highly, it’s a really special award to win.

“With research indicating that 353,000 more people will require complex care by the year 2025, providing rich learning opportunities for the next generation of health and social care workers is vital to the sector’s future.

“Our programmes develop care workers’ skills and behaviours so that they can broaden their skillset and deliver important person-centred care. We work closely with each of our learners to tailor our training methods to their strengths, traits and goals. It ensures that they get the most from their hard work. We are delighted that we have been recognised, as we continue our commitment to ensuring all our learners receive the best experiences to help reach their potential.”

The recognition from AllaboutSchoolLeavers continues BB Training Academy’s successful year. In January it was named as a Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer and in February it won the Apprenticeship Programme of the Year at the esteemed TES FE Awards.
