Health & Social Care Academy
Supporting the Transformation of Health and Social Care
The Health and Social Care Academy (HaSCA) is a ground breaking initiative, designed to bring together expertise within the University of Salford and deliver industry focused services to the health and social care sector.
HaSCA aims to disseminate knowledge and expertise for health care practitioners, working and engaging with industries to facilitate a gateway to the university for strategic partners, and lead the way in delivering a better health and social care.
This builds on the university’s ‘Industry Collaboration Zone’ strategy: to provide a talented, technically proficient and professional workforce to support the North West’s rapidly growing industries. The ICZs unite colleagues, students, industry and communities through shared knowledge, learning and innovation.
HaSCA is a gateway to:
- Post-graduate programmes and accredited provision
- Industry focused briefings and events
- Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP’s)
- Industry placements
- Research and collaborations
Health and Social Care Academy
In October 2015 MPCP commissioned a 12 month CMI Level 7 accredited Board Development Programme for their board directors, shareholder federations and senior management, the programme covered elements such as leadership, coaching and change management.
