A North East sixth form has launched a state-of-the-art Health Hub to provide future healthcare professionals with skills to meet the sector’s increasing needs. Healthcare jobs are in high demand across the health and care sector and the predicted shortfall in roles across the Tees Valley is expected to stretch beyond 4,000 by 2022. The Health Hub at Hartlepool Sixth Form will deliver industry-standard training in a realistic setting, including a new health and social care simulated ward and community care facility.
This has led to exciting new partnerships with Person Centred Software and ASCOM, who will support students to develop their digital skills, embedding digital technology in care, to reach their full potential.
