We are looking for volunteers to take part in the project who are currently unpaid carers, looking to get into paid work as a PA. You will need to be an unpaid carer to join the PA Academy programme. You receive free training in the following areas:

  • Introduction to PA work
  • Safeguarding
  • Basic First Aid
  • Manual Handling
  • Medication
  • Infection Control
  • Care Certificate Standards

After training you will be offered a short work experience placement with an Individual Employer to get first-hand experience of working as a PA.
The carers will not be paid to attend the PA Academy but will receive free training and support, thanks to Skills for Care funding.

Once completed you will be a PA Champion and join our recruitment database. This means employers can search for you.
