A new project from Health Education England

Carew Academy welcomed Health Education England (HEE) for a visit to discuss a new project they are working on. HEE are bringing together a new programme of work that focuses on increasing the number of individuals with learning difficulties and disabilities who take up apprenticeships within the NHS. This programme will work jointly across government departments and agencies and NHS Trusts. HEE are currently holding a number of focus groups with organisations, students with SEND and their staff to assist them in developing and informing best practice and resources to support this programme.

As a specialist College and Trust, OHCAT is fully engaged with supporting this initiative and breaking down barriers to employment within the NHS. To facilitate this work three team members from HEE came to meet with a range of staff from the College, the Trust’s Shared Services team and Governing Body at our offices in Sutton. They then visited Carew Academy in the afternoon where HEE held focus group sessions with students from Year11 and the 6th Form to look at what “Good supported employment” should look like from their perspective. The students discussed their previous work experience placements, what worked and what didn’t and what they would like to happen when starting a new job.

One of the students, a budding journalist, wrote her own story on the visit. To read her full article, please click here

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
