Pendine Academy.. Virtual Care Home

We have moved into a 8,000 square foot building, the new home of Pendine Academy. It is a ground-breaking virtual training centre featuring totally realistic recreations of a residents' lounge, bedroom and dining area.

The Academy was officially opened in October 2017 by Wrexham AM Lesley Griffiths and Ken Skates, the Welsh Government's Cabinet Secretary for the Economy and Infrastructure. The First Minister identified social care as one of just a handful of priority themes for the whole of Government to focus on and said "Our contribution in the Economy Department will be to make care a national foundation priority sector so we can get to a point in the future where Wales is seen as the best place in which to receive care, the best place to grow old in a secure, dignified and safe way. Pendine Park's contribution to that agenda is crucial."

Lesley Griffiths, who is also the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment and Rural Affairs, said: "Pendine Park provides the gold standard for social care. Their commitment to high quality training is an example to the whole sector and their continued investment in the Pendine Academy of Social Care will help them raise the bar yet again"

Pendine Park proprietor said "Our training academy was set up in the mid-1990s and for the past 20 years we've been developing the concept of the teaching care home based on similar principles to a teaching hospital"

Our unique Pop up training experiences make training realistic and fun to embed learning. We offer one off courses or ongoing training packages at our Academy or clients premises.
