Dignity in Care Accolade

The Department of Health & Social Development at Tameside College and Hyde Clarendon Sixth Form College were very proud to be the first educational establishment to achieve the Dignity in Care ‘Daisy Accreditation’ with Tameside & Glossop Community Healthcare Group.

Achieving ‘Daisy Accreditation’ demonstrates that all aspects of teaching and learning provision within the department meet the accreditation standards and are delivered with dignity and respect.

Jill Pinington, the Strategic Pathway Partnership Lead for End of Life/Long Term Conditions for Tameside & Glossop Community Healthcare Group said, “This is the first educational ‘Daisy’ to be awarded and has created new partnerships with Health & Social Care across Tameside”.

Leading the assessment and moderation for the accreditation was Janet Robson, the Modern Matron for Dignity in Care for Tameside & Glossop Community Healthcare Group. Janet said, “The team achieved an ‘excellent’ on their observation visit and their workbook demonstrated their commitment to students and education”.

Sonia Bellamy, the Teaching & Learning Coach within the Health & Social Development department said, “We are extremely proud to achieve this accreditation and hope it is seen by both current and future learners as a benchmark of the high quality teaching, support and all round provision they will receive whilst studying at the College. The ethos of Dignity in Care is embedded in all that we do and, in turn, instilled in our learners who will become the Health & Social Development workforce of the future.”
