Existing workers and people thinking about a career in adult social care, are being invited to find out more at a career development day in Herefordshire on 6th March 2014 at the Kindle Centre, Hereford.
As the county’s population grows older and legislation changes are afoot, there are more opportunities than ever for people to develop careers working with adults who need support, and the career development day gives people the chance to come and talk to those already working in the sector.
Organised by local organisations, including Herefordshire Council*, the event consists of information stands hosted by people who work with adults plus lots of information about training opportunities available locally. There will also be two 30 minute interactive workshops on dignity and working in adult social care at 12 noon and 1.30 respectively.
Amy Whiles, workforce development adviser, said: “Working with adults is a growth area and there are more opportunities than ever before. We need all sorts of people to get involved in supporting people: from gardeners, cooks and activities co-ordinators to personal assistants, social workers and occupational therapists. This career development day is a chance for people to explore potential new careers or look at developing their existing career further.”
