Agincare Health & Social Care Academy

Agincare has always been committed to learning and development for our teams as well as actively engaging with and informing wider sector issues. The Agincare Health and Social Care Academy utilises our position as the largest independent health and social care employer in Dorset, coupled with our national presence, to support local education and key employment skills for the sector. Agincare is working in partnership with Weymouth College to drive:

  • Awareness of the range and scope of social care services
  • Opportunities and clear pathways for employment and a 'Career in Care'
  • Experience, enrichment and engagement for our educational and social care staff teams, students and families
  • Innovation, job creation and economic future for quality social care services; supported by a skilled, professional and valued workforce.

This initiative sees Agincare and Weymouth College working in partnership to offer a wide range of clear pathways for a rewarding long-term ‘career in care’ for the students of Dorset. Both Weymouth College and Agincare believe that a strong partnership between business and education is a key way forward in developing the very best career opportunities for the people of Dorset.

Nigel Evans Principal of Weymouth College

I believe very strongly in the importance of business and education working together as evidenced by the successful model that is our HIX Academy. There are lots of opportunities within the care sector in West Dorset offering a wealth of opportunity for health and social care students. We are extremely pleased to be working with Agincare on the Academy which I firmly believe offers the innovation, enrichment and job creation possibilities so important to the economic future of quality social care services in Dorset.
