21 Talks Episode 2 - Extra Care Academy
In the latest episode of 21 Talks, guest host and Housing 21 resident Jill is sitting down with colleagues Steph Lee (Housing and Care Manager) and Jamie Lindon-Lewis (Head of Quality Assurance and Commissioning) to talk about their career journeys, what it’s like to work in care and how people can join the care industry’s first Extra Care Academy.
The course, which aims to tackle misconceptions that there are no clearly defined career paths in care, will enable workers to progress to management roles – such as Assistant Care or Housing Manager, Scheme Manager and even Regional Manager – while also including a Level 3 Health & Social Care qualification.
