Proud to Care Ambassadors

Proud to Care Ambassadors are enthusiastic, frontline care and health staff who attend careers events and talk about why they love their job. We currently have 50+ Ambassadors in Devon who attend events at schools, colleges, universities, job centres and apprenticeship events to talk honestly about their role in health and social care. 

The Proud to Care Ambassadors scheme is run in association with the National Skills for Care I Care...Ambassadors initiative. The Sustainability and Transformation Programme (STP) in wider Devon, representing a large number of care and health organisations, successfully applied to be part of a pilot of Integrated Health and Social Care Ambassadors, run by Skills for Care, delivering joint activity to promote social care and health careers. The pilot will run until 30 November 2017 and then will be evaluated by Skills for Care. There is no minimum required time commitment to become an ambassador. Skills for Care have recently relaxed their CQC requirements; you can view these here.

You can read through the agendas, minutes and other associated documentation from previous Proud to Care Ambassadors meetings below.
