Students should set sights on STARS

  • Comment

A new modular NVQ training scheme to help reduce the skills gap in health and social care will be rolled out for NHS staff this month

STARS – standing for Systematic, Training, Achievement, Retention and Success – was officially launched on 11 March. It has been designed to provide fast paced learning to enable students to get an NVQ in a short period of time, keeping them motivated and encouraging high achievement rates.

Piloted in BUPA Care Services, the programme already has achieved a high success rate with around 90% of students finishing the course and achieving their qualification.

It is run by NVQUK and Protocol Skills and covers a broad range of subjects for health service employees including healthcare, health support worker, business administration and customer service.

The work-based courses are taught by a local training co-ordinator which allows the student to get specific focused training relevant to their current role.
