Health and Social Care

Health & Social Care level 2 and 3

 

Apprenticeship covers a wide range of job roles on 2 pathways: the adult social care pathway and the health care pathway. This could mean working in the NHS, the private sector, local authorities or in the voluntary sectors.

Training opportunities

Your job role will depend on the pathway that you choose.

Social Care

You’ll be helping people with a particular need such as the disabled, the elderly or people with learning disabilities in their everyday life. This type of care usually takes place in the home, in care homes or in the community. It can include anything from helping people get dressed to transporting them to and from a residential home or taking them shopping.

Health Care

You could work in hospitals, the community, hospices or private clinics as a healthcare support worker or a healthcare assistant. You could be supporting doctors and nurses or helping patients in hospital wards or their homes by serving food and making and changing beds.
