Become an Apprentice

What is an Apprenticeship programme?

Want a great start to your career? An Apprenticeship could be the answer.

What is it all about?

Apprenticeships are jobs with accompanying skills and development that are designed by employers. These develop technical knowledge, skills and behaviours which include the capabilities for the application of English, Maths and interpersonal skills that are required for current and future aspirations within the sector. Development is acquired through a blended mix of 20% off-the-job training and 80% workplace skills. They are designed for people of any age with little or lots of experience, to stretch and challenge their capabilities and enhance a sector that we know you are passionate about. 

If you are just starting your career in Social care and want to learn more or be in your job and want to specialise or move up in your company, or just develop your skills and understanding of your role. An apprenticeship may be the opportunity that you are looking for. With the right advice and guidance, we can help you to achieve your aspirations. The apprenticeship programmes are designed for those in employment to develop themselves into a more rounded and enable people to prepare, professionalise and progress with endless opportunities within the Social care sector.
