Health and Social Care Skills Accelerator Programme - HSSAP



New to Health and Care, or thinking about upskilling? You may be interested in HSSAP, the Health and Social Care Skills Accelerator Programme which is jointly funded by the European Social Fund and Devon County Council. The project offers flexible courses that suit learners' individual journeys, and support development and a career in the health and care sector.

The project finishes in December 2023 and offers a range of free courses from entry-level to level 5, which are delivered in Plymouth by City College and On Course South West. Other educational providers such as South Devon College, Learn Devon, Petroc and Exeter College also have a suite of courses that are free to access.

There is a range of both online and face-to-face courses available in subjects such as understanding Autism, Medication training, Safeguarding Vulnerable people and Counselling Skills.
