What is an apprenticeship in adult social care?

In adult social care you will be working with a range of people who need care and support, in a wide range of roles. This could include people with learning disabilities and/ or autism, physical disabilities or older people.

Some people may need personal care, some may need support to live as independently as possible whilst others may need care and support. There are a wide range of roles within adult social care in different settings.

You could do an apprenticeship in a direct care or support role. If you take this apprenticeship, it will assist you in acquiring Health and Social Care Level 1,2 or 3 which is a higher diploma or into management.
