Progression FROM the Intermediate level Apprenticeship

Learners may progress from this pathway onto further qualifications specific to their work context. A wide range of qualifications are available for use within the social care sector. These may include further apprenticeship frameworks (e.g. Advanced level Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care), QCF qualifications or other work-related education and training to support Continuing Professional Development.

Apprentices can also move to other parts of the sector, for example an apprentice specialising in learning disabilities can take a dementia qualification if their job role changes or if they wish to follow career ambitions in another part of the sector
