Free information session on becoming a Personal Assistant within the S

Recommended Posts

Do you want to know more about one of the fastest growing professions in the country for both full and part time employment? If so, come along to our free information event and learning session at The Circle, Rockingham Lane on the 1st of March (1.30pm-4.30pm)


This event is being held to give you an opportunity to increase your knowledge and understanding of the role of the Personal Assistant (PA) within health and social care. We are aiming to increase the recruitment and retention of those working in the PA role by giving you access to the information and resources required to gain employment in this line of work.


On the day, there will be opportunities to chat to those who not only employ their own Personal Assistants, but also people who are currently working as PAs themselves. As well as Individual Employers and Personal Assistants being on hand to share their knowledge and experiences, we will be running informal learning sessions for you to take part in.


Session 1 – Terminology and Differences

This session is a short exercise that will help you understand the differences between the care roles in the Health & Social Care industry.


Session 2 – What is the PA role?

As well as covering what attributes an ideal PA would possess, this session also involves a short Q&A that will help to dispel any myths you may have heard about the role of a Personal Assistant. We will also present you with a number of scenarios that will lead you to question what a PA’s values, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours might be.


Session 3 – Being a PA

This session will be an informal discussion around what it might mean to support an employer in the various roles a PA may encounter.


Session 4 – How to become a Personal Assistant

This is a short film about being a PA followed by a discussion with supporting information and guidance about the PA Register.


Session 5 – Personal Assistants sharing their experience.

PAs telling their stories on how they became a PA


There will also be lots of resources available on the day for you to take away with you.


This event has very limited availability, so we ask that you email in advance to book a place. We hope you can come along and look forward to welcoming you to the rewarding role of the Personal Assistant! To book, or if you have any questions, please email tess.daly@disabilitysheffield.org.uk
