NPTC Pathways Training Supports Local Care Providers
Neath Port Talbot College (NPTC) Pathways
Training has been working with a number of local care providers to
raise awareness of the subsidised training available to staff as
part of Social Care Week.
Social Care Week (18 - 22 June) aims to
improve awareness of the valuable service that 88,000 social care
practitioners provide in Wales to support our community.
Pathways Training provides work-based learning
and has been established for over 30 years. We work with a number
of local care providers to support them in developing the skills of
their employees who provide care in the community and raise
awareness of the subsidised training available to them through the
Skills for Industry (SfI) project.
The SfI project offers subsidised work-based
training in Customer Service, Childcare, Business Administration,
Retail, Motor Vehicle and Engineering at Levels 2 and 3. The Level
2 Team Leading and Level 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care are
also available under this project. Private sector, voluntary and
third sector companies can benefit from this project which aims to
support productivity, progression and raise skills levels in
employment until December 2015.
Glais House Nursing Home is just one of the
many organisations that have demonstrated commitment into
developing the skills of their care staff and provide a high
standard of care.
Glais House provides residential and nursing
care for the elderly with a particular focus on nursing and
dementia care needs.
Sue Lewis, Glais House Manager said: "We are
passionate about delivering quality care by empowering staff
through work-based training."
