As an apprentice in health care, you could work in hospitals, the community, doctors’ surgeries, hospices, private clinics or opticians. You could be supporting doctors or nurses in clinical roles or helping patients in hospital wards or their homes.
Social care is about helping people with a particular need, such as those who are disabled or the elderly. This type of care usually takes place in the home or in care homes, and can include anything from helping people get dressed to accompanying to social activities. As an apprentice in social care, you could be a personal care assistant helping someone in their everyday life.
Completion of the advanced apprenticeship will stand you in good stead for progression onto Higher Education in subjects like nursing or midwifery and operating department practitioner roles in the care sector or management roles in care homes.
