Health & Social Care Apprenticeships

Grow Your Career In An 'In-Demand' Sector

A career helping and supporting people in Health and Social Care is a very rewarding experience. You could be working in a care home or supporting people in the community. They could be elderly or have learning disabilities.

Essential skills are good communication, organisation, patience, diplomacy, team working as well as a flexible approach to your work.

You'll initially be working under close supervision, but as you gain experience you will be expected to use your initiative and identify tasks that need doing, working more autonomously.

You can find Health & Social Care Apprenticeship jobs in our Vacancies area or on the government site Find An Apprenticeship. We also post our vacancies on Facebook and Twitter.

The UK has an ageing and expanding population so the demand for health and social care workers is set to increase, providing you opportunity to create a rewarding, long term career.

Before you can start working in a helathcare setting you will need to complete a DBS, Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced background check.
