Overview

This is the new Apprentice Standard for Senior Adult Social Care workers. It is aimed at those who are looking to upskill and move up a level in their role.

Course description

This course will prepare you to lead a team or a process within the organisation. You will work towards the Level 3 Diploma for Health and Social Care as well as developing a reflective journal of practice. The learning will be a mixture of on and off the job training and you will be required to attend college as agreed with the employer.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to improve maths and English to Level 2 if you do not already hold the GCSE's in Grade A-C or Grade 4 or above. The new "end point assessment" is provided by an independent assessment organisation.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to be delivered online as much as possible.
