Unpaid carers join the PA Academy programme and receive free training and a short work experience placement with an Individual Employer to get first-hand experience of working as a PA.
Training will include: Basic First Aid, Manual Handling, Infection Control and much more..
Carers will not be paid to participate in the PA Academy however all training provided is free thanks to Skills for Care funding.
Carers who complete the PA Academy will be identified as PA Champions and join our PA database which local employers use to find PAs.
To find out more come along to one of the following informal drop-in sessions at Independent Lives office.
