There are many career and training options in health and social care and what you'll learn will depend on your role this could include care worker, healthcare support or nursing assistant.
Over time you'll learn skills like:
- Your duty of care
- Dementia awareness
- Person-centred care
- Improving your performance at work.
You'll also learn about employer rights and responsibilities and study functional skills in maths, English and IT. You'll leave the course with a qualification in health and social care.
The name of the course, as it appears on your qualification or certificate, will be Health and Social Care Apprenticeship

Remember that you may need to invest in some smart clothing appropriate to an office environment. If you are working with vulnerable people, you may need a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service) and you may need to pay for this. Our team will discuss this with you and any items you need for college.
You could go straight into work after your apprenticeship we have contacts with many local employers so we often know when a job is available. And many apprentices stay on with the company they started with. You'll be able to talk to your apprenticeship assessor about the options available to you.
