Health & Social Care - City of Wolverhampton College

Health & Social Care

As an employer in the health and social care sector, taking on an apprentice is a great way to train new staff and for your organisation to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge. 

The programme enables apprentices to combine on-the-job training working alongside existing staff in the workplace with studying for occupational standards set by employers and learning from experienced college tutors who have worked in the sector themselves.   

Whether you’re a GP in a busy medical practice, the owner of an independent care homea manager in an NHS setting, or a company providing domiciliary care, apprenticeship training will enable your employees to develop the skills and knowledge needed to meet the demands of the organisation and provide a high standard of care to patients and clients. 

And apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff! If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can also benefit from apprenticeship training, as well as part-time Level 2 and Level 3 diplomas in adult care.  

Throughout their training, apprentices will be supported by college staff who will work closely with you to ensure that the skills they are learning are what is required by your business and that they will achieve their full potential and career aspirations, and meet your business needs.

The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support you through appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview – and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people looking for an apprenticeship in the health and social care sector you’ll have access to work-ready candidates and be able to get your new apprentice on board in just a couple of weeks.
