If you want a career in health and social care, an apprenticeship is a great way to learn the skills you need, whatever part of the sector you want to work in.
With programmes at beginner level if you’re just starting out, up to HND level for more experienced practitioners, an apprenticeship will enable you to work in a relevant role in the health and social care sector while you’re doing your training – and, because you’ll be doing a real job for a real employer, you’ll get paid too!
Whether you do your apprenticeship in a hospital, GP surgery, private clinic, opticians, care home or social services setting, you will combine on-the-job training, working alongside experienced staff, with attending college – usually one day per week – where you will be taught by highly qualified tutors who have worked in the sector themselves.
What’s more, you’ll be supported throughout your training by a college assessor who will visit you in the workplace to make sure you are meeting your targets and that both you and your employer are getting the most out of your apprenticeship.
We have excellent relationships with local employers and develop training to meet the needs of their businesses, so you can be assured you’ll gain the skills that they are looking for in their employees – and, if you impress them during your training, you may even be offered a job when you’ve completed apprenticeship and gained your qualification.
And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email email@example.com and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further.
