Get Paid, Get Qualified
One of the best things about an Apprenticeship in health & social care is that you get to work in the healthcare environment straight away. You get to experience:
- Learning from experienced health & social care workers
- A front line role in a variety of formal care settings
- Continually gain practical skills and experience
- Earn while you learn
When you successfully complete your Health & Social Care Intermediate Level Apprenticeship you will qualify with a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care, as well as Level 1 Functional Skills in Maths & English. You will also have gained solid references, some great colleagues in the industry and positive experiences.
An Apprenticeship provides some fantastic opportunities, and at Paragon Skills we are here to ensure that you get the most from your training.

What you can expect
An Apprenticeship is a valuable doorway of opportunity for learners and employees to progress in their industry. The need for skilled healthcare workers continues to increase as lifespans are getting longer. The healthcare sector allows for a variety of healthcare routes.
A Health & Social Care Intermediate Level Apprenticeship is an investment in the skills that you need to succeed in the health & social care industry. These include:
- good practical skills
- an understanding and tactful approach
- willingness to learn new techniques and methods
- an awareness of health issues
- caring for the unwell
The exact details of your job depend on your specific employer, but typically you can expect to work around 37 hours a week on a shift or rota system, including nights, banks holidays and weekends. Flexible and part-time hours are often available. If you plan to work in the community, you are likely to travel throughout the day between patients’ homes and a driving license may be needed. As a health & social care Apprentice, your role could include some of the following:
- Supporting people to cope with aspects of everyday living
- Helping patients to wash, shower or dress
- Helping patients to move around if they find it difficult
You’ll also learn:
- A front line role in the delivery of care provision in a formal care setting
- Working in hospitals, community or hospices
- Helping people with a specific need such as physical or learning difficulties
As a Medical Receptionist I wanted to gain more knowledge of working with the public. Achieving my Level 3 NVQ in Customer Service has definitley benefitted me. I have more of an understanding of dealing with patients in different situations on a daily basis. I'm now planning to complete a Level 3 NVQ in Business Management to help me in my future career.
