CCCG receives Mayor’s Quality Mark for Health and Social Care

CCCG was awarded the accolade by the Greater London Authority (GLA) after demonstrating its excellent provision and commitment to train people to work in the sector.

The Group offers many Health and Social Care courses and apprenticeships at its three colleges – City and Islington College, Westminster Kingsway College and the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London – and its apprenticeship and training provider Capital City College Training.

CCCG has now received all six of the GLA’s Quality Marks having also successfully maintained its five existing Quality Marks for Creative, Digital, Hospitality, Green and Construction this year.

Four of these Quality Marks – Creative, Digital. Hospitality and Green – have resulted in the development of Mayor of London Skills Academy Hubs at the Group’s colleges.

Confirming CCCG’s latest Quality Mark for Health and Social Care, the GLA said: “The Mayor’s Skills Academies Quality Mark aims to set a high bar for skills training in London that responds to the needs of sectors key to London’s recovery. 

“The Quality Mark is only awarded to training providers who deliver high-quality provision in the digital, creative, health and social care, hospitality, green and construction sectors, which meets the GLA’s published assessment criteria.”

Quality Mark status enables colleges to connect with other education providers across London to promote skills provision, collaborate and share knowledge and address challenges in the sector. In the past it has also led to financial investment to support training.

To achieve the Quality Mark, CCCG had to show how its courses and apprenticeships are industry relevant and successful at getting people into employment and further training.

The Group also had to provide evidence to show the strength of its relationships with employers and sector bodies and how its teachers keep up to date with industry trends, along with details about its training facilities and how it attracts applicants from underrepresented backgrounds.

Jackie Chapman, Executive Director for Growth and Partnerships at CCCG, said: “I am delighted to see this recognition of our provision. CCCG has a wide offer and has focused attention over the last year in supporting the industry fill emerging skills gaps.

“We provide sector-based work academies, directly supporting local residents into jobs, and our work with NHS Trusts is expanding year on year with specialisms such as pharmacy and maternity. Our full-time offer ranges from a Level 1 course in basic healthcare to high level specialisms such as ophthalmology.

“The achievement of gaining all six available Quality Marks represents the fantastic provision now available at CCCG to employers and residents in London.”
