College hosts care conference


Truro and Penwith College hosted the second Care and E-Health Conference recently to explore the evolution of the care sector.

The conference celebrated how the collaborative approach between the college and local businesses has helped shape the future of local provision by developing a ‘Skills Escalator’ that will train staff throughout the sector to deliver excellence in local care standards.

The conference gave organisations and employees within the care community the opportunity to hear from leading businesses and industry experts to discuss the sector’s response to demographic changes and the increasing integration of health and care provision.

Tamsyn Harris, Head of Truro and Penwith College Business, said: “The Conference was a great opportunity for us to hear the needs of the sector and to work alongside those who are on the front line of the care.

“Working collaboratively with businesses throughout the county allows us to develop training that directly addresses their needs and ensures the qualifications people receive will continue to benefit them throughout their career.”
