Qualify for a new career through Acura Training and the Human Support Group

At the Human Support Group we strongly believe in professional development and we provide the appropriate advice, guidance and support to ensure that all our care staff can progress their career within the company.

There a many opportunities to do this within the company and below we outline just a few options that are available.

Health & Social Care Diploma

Blended Learning

We work with Stepehnson College to give all our staff the opportunity to progress to nationally recognised and approved level 2 qualifications. With the current availability of government funding these courses are usually available at significant subsidised rates which means they are free to all our staff, providing the course is completed within the given timescales.

Stephenson College

 Stephenson College provides a range of programs which come under the general heading of Distant Learning. Distant Learning is an accessible way to acquire qualifications through a blended learning approach.

The benefits of a blended apograph to learning are:

  • you gain a nationally recognised qualification at Level 2
  • you further your personal development and develop new skills and understanding
  • that the qualifications are mapped against a range of National Occupational Standards for older people, Clinical Health Skills, General Health Care and Health and Social Care.
  • a flexible learning schedule, at a pace that suits the individual, while receiving support and guidance from a dedicated team of qualified assessors/tutors
  • you receive extensive learning support material to cover the whole course


Health and Social Care Apprenticeships provide learners with the knowledge and skills needed to work in a variety of health and social care settings. From helping people with a particular need to providing vital assistance to healthcare professionals in the care of patients.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of employers, which leads to nationally-recognised qualifications for the apprentice. This training is flexible and is predominantly ‘on-the-job’ and in the workplace. There are lots of benefits to doing an Apprenticeship and we are happy to talk you through them.
