The Sussex Partnership Health and Care Academy

Sussex Partnership's Health and Care Academy works in partnership with colleges and sixth forms to offer training opportunities in real-life hospital settings to enable students to transition into a healthcare programme at university and for a career with the NHS. 

The aims of the Academy are to provide opportunities for people of all ages and from all backgrounds across Sussex to join the trust and start their NHS career with Sussex Partnership. 

Students are mentored by our Health Care Support Workers who can give students the experience of working in a multi-disciplinary setting for mental health, learning disability and neurodiversity services.  

This programme is available to students studying the Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diploma in Nursing and Healthcare Professions at GB Met
