Qube Learning (@QubeLearning): Get Started with Healthcare, in partnership with The Prince’s Trust

 Leading national recruitment and training provider Qube Learning has partnered with youth charity The Prince’s Trust to recruit and place young people into care sector roles. Through a scheme funded by the Department for Health and Social Care and in partnership with Health Education England, the charity and education organisation are aiming to fill a large number of vacancies over the next three years.

The number of roles available in the social care sector increase by around 1% per year (an average of 17,000 new roles per annum) and Skills for Care have noted that there are at least 112,000 social care vacancies that need to be filled on any given day. Consequently, both organisations are committed to driving employability within such an important sector, providing more sustainable opportunities for young people, vitally contributing also to driving down the average age of those working within the sector as a result.

The youth charity founded in 1976 by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, helps vulnerable young people get their lives on track. Supporting young people 11 to 30-year-olds all over the UK to build their confidence and skills to support them into jobs, education and training. Qube Learning, an expert in the further education sphere, is a seamless fit for the charity as they look to assist in kickstarting the careers for those looking to work in the healthcare and adult social care industry. Qube Learning will provide essential careers guidance and the development of employability skills for people, linking them to Employers who have live job vacancies.

Joe Crossley, CEO of Qube Learning, says:

“We are thrilled to be working with The Prince’s Trust. Working with such a reputable charity, we are keen to nourish this relationship, move it forward and engage and recruit talented people with a desire to succeed through the scheme. It isn’t about who they know or where they are from, it is about what they can give to a role in an area of work that is crying out for gifted, brilliant people. We look for raw talent, to nurture someone’s abilities, we want them to be successful and see a future in care, while learning and building on their skill set. This is an exciting opportunity for us, we have a huge amount of knowledge in this space and look forward to seeing the results.”

Rebecca Price, Senior Head of Service Delivery of Health and Social Care at The Prince’s Trust, says:

“We are excited to be collaborating with Qube Learning on such an important initiative, giving young people the opportunity, skills and necessary support to start meaningful careers within the care sector. Our work will give more young people access to the right opportunities to fulfil their potential and into sustainable careers they can be proud of; at a time when both the sector and young people need us the most.”

With many roles available, all jobs and Apprenticeships within health and social care organisations and their supply chains are within scope for the programme. The encouraging partnership looks to place people in healthcare assistant, support worker, IT support, catering, finance, administration, facilities management, and health logistics roles, to name a few.

Qube Learning is proud to be an OFSTED grade 2 (Good) Training Provider and works with hundreds of Employers across the country to deliver a range of training and qualifications to a multitude of Students.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
