Developing Skills in Health and Social Care (DSHSC)

The Developing Skills in Health and Social Care (DSHSC) project, partially funded by the European Social Fund, provides fully funded qualifications to staff working in the Health and Social Care sector across Norfolk and Suffolk. City College Norwich is part of this collaborative project, led by Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, alongside a range of local colleges, training providers and other partners. The aim of the project is to empower people working in the sector to develop new skills. This will enable them to continue providing high-quality care to local people.

City College Norwich is offering the following qualifications:

Level 4 Empowering and Aspiring Future Managers in Adult Care course:

  • 1 x 3 hours live online session per week for 15 weeks. 

Level 2 Award in Awareness of End of Life Care course:

  • Taught option: 1x 2.5 hour live online session per week for 8 weeks (days and times tbc once enrolled).

  • Taught option: 1x 2.5 hour live online session per week for 6 weeks (days and times tbc once enrolled).
  • Flexible option: Time released online materials which can be studied at a time to suit you, with regular online workshops available.

Courses do not have specific start dates and will run on a rolling timetable. This allows us to ensure that courses can run once enough participants have signed up to the specific course. You will be required to supply information to support your enrolment and funding for the course and will be informed of the start date, days and times once your enrolment is complete.

As part of the project you will have access to one-to-one sessioms through your course lecturer, plus you will be allocated a mentor by Norfolk/Suffolk County Council to support you on your learning journey.

To be eligible, participants must:

  • Be legally entitled to live and work in the UK
  • Live in Norfolk or Suffolk and be employed by an organisation that provides health and / or social care services for adults in Norfolk or Suffolk (This includes people who are self-employed).
