 Local healthcare staffing agency, Acton Banks, have launched a new initiative to help those affected by unemployment as a result of the pandemic and end of the furlough scheme.
The Acton Banks Academy, launched this month, will provide fully funded essential training for potential carers. The courses will also include support in organising new applicant’s shadow shifts, DBS documents and all other necessary documentation, as well as securing shifts after successfully passing the course. 
The initiative was conceived by Operations Director, Preety Johal, after witnessing an increase in unqualified applications. 
Acton Banks Academy takes place every few weeks at the company’s Head Office, based on Salop Street, and is available to anyone wishing to move forward in a new career.
Preety said; “We’ve been a part of the Wolverhampton business community for nearly 20 years and we’re extremely passionate about our locality, its residents and fellow businesses.
During the pandemic, we saw clients struggle to fill positions due to sickness and isolation from COVID, whilst at the same time we received an influx of applications from those wanting to help, but not being able to due to lack of experience and training as a healthcare professional.
We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to help not only our clients to ensure they can fill rotas and maintain excellent standards of care, but also our community who may otherwise be out of work, and unable to pay to retrain in another career. We’re proud to be able to give back to the community who’ve supported us over the past two decades.”

If you’ve been affected in your employment due to the pandemic, and are interested in applying for the course, please contact the Recruitment Team on 01902 711 855 or email
