News from Devon County Council: School and college leavers encouraged to ‘earn while they learn’

Devon County Council is launching a recruitment campaign this week aimed at 17 to 25 year olds, to encourage them to consider training and apprenticeship opportunities within the Devon’s growing health and social care sector.  The campaign is called ‘Proud to Care Devon’.  The Council is asking schools to help promote the campaign to young people and their families. GCSE and A Level students may be considering their next steps after school or college, and for many, the opportunity to gain professional qualifications while on the job is an attractive option.

Here is a link to the Proud to Care webpsite. The campaign uses real examples of young people who have chosen to train or take up apprenticeships within health and social care, while also gaining professional qualifications in order to further their careers.

Here is a link to the media story on Devon County Council’s news centre.
