Apprenticeships in this sector cover a wide range of job roles in the health and social care fields; in the NHS, local authorities, or the private sector.
Apprenticeships in Health & Social Care are about helping people with a particular need, such as the disabled or the elderly. This type of care usually takes place in their home, in care homes, in the community, or in health care establishments.
If you wish to work in a supervised role with adults in health and social care settings, this qualification covers a wide range of areas, including supporting individuals with their physical and emotional care, daily living activities, and health care procedures. This qualification has generic, dementia, and learning disabilities pathways. Units include:
- The Role of the Health and Social Care Worker
- Person-Centred Care, Duty of Care & Safeguarding
- Equality and Inclusion
After successful completion of this Apprenticeship there is good scope for progression. You may move up through levels of work, for example, from care assistant to key worker.
You will benefit through regular contact and support from teaching staff.
Apprentices must hold Level 1 qualifications in English and Maths or equivalent. Functional Skills can be completed alongside through taught lessons if GCSE English and Maths are grade C or below.
Apprentices will have the opportunity to progress to the Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care and Advanced Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care when their role progresses to senior carer.
