The health and social care workers of the future will need to develop new sets of skills in order to implement new ways of working as society moves to delivering care in a different way.
Health and social care training will need to exploit the use of assistive technology, and therefore embed this training in all of its programmes in order to effectively prepare the workforce of the future. This will include health and social care professionals, technology developers, commissioners, assessors and anyone that needs to gain a clear understanding of this growing area.
All students that enrol on a health and social care course at Barnet and Southgate College will now study a CETEC module as part of their core qualification. In addition to this, however, we will be providing a variety of courses for professionals that will offer an insight into assisted living technologies and therefore ensure employers have a clear route to upskilling their existing workforce appropriately.
We also offer a bespoke service, so if you are an employer or service provider that has a specific training need then speak to us so that we can develop a package that is perfect for your requirements.

This is a growing market and many industries are investing heavily to ensure that they can provide an excellent, individual service to every customer, no matter what their individual needs maybe.
For example, the leisure industry invests heavily to provide specialist cabins within cruise ships or hotel suites for those who need extra support. We can advise and support organisations to develop specialist rooms to ensure those with the most challenging mobility issues can experience a world class holiday or business break.
There is also a need to produce evidence to demonstrate to clinicians, social care providers and commissioners that the use of assisted living technologies can help to manage and reduce unplanned hospital admissions for patients with long terms conditions.
We offer, for both the private and public sectors:
CETEC can provide a wide range of research and evaluation services for health and social care providers, universities and commercial organisations. If you have a specific requirement we can work with you to ensure successful delivery of your research or evaluation project.
