Who is the Apprenticeship for?
This Apprenticeship is ideal for your employees who are experienced Practitioners in Children's Residential Care and who have a passion for working with children, young people and families to support their health, education and day-to-day needs. This could be in a range of settings including children’s homes, residential special schools or with children that live on their own or in a larger group. They may also be experienced in working alongside other professionals and organisations to share the responsibility for improving outcomes and helping children reach their full potential.
Before taking their end-point assessment, your employees must have achieved the Level 3 Diploma for Residential Childcare. Otherwise, they can study it alongside this Apprenticeship.
