Apprenticeships in adult social care
Apprenticeships allow individuals to earn a wage whilst learning new skills and completing a nationally recognised qualification

As an apprentice, you will work alongside experienced staff and complete your qualification in the workplace, at college, with a local independent training provider or at university.

An apprenticeship in adult social care means working with and providing support to a broad range of people. This may include those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and the elderly.

There are a wide range of apprenticeships available, from Level 2 Intermediate apprenticeships to degree level, dependent upon current skills and experience. They are not just for young people; anyone over the age of 16 can become an apprentice.

You can apply for an apprenticeship if you are: over 16 – you can apply whilst you are still at school as long as you are 16 by the end of the summer holidays; living in England and not in full-time education.

You can also apply if you are already working in social care to help you gain new skills and progress into a new position.
