Healthcare Apprenticeships for your team

Healthcare professionals have to be highly trained and skilled to meet the industry standards. The health and social care qualifications that we offer include the latest trailblazer Apprenticeship standards designed for employers by employers to ensure that all training is highly relevant for the sector. 

Both the Adult Care worker level 2 and Lead Adult Care Worker level 3 Apprenticeship standards contain the ‘Care Certificate’ which is the key component of the total induction that an employer must legally provide to meet the minimum essential standards as set out by the Quality Care Commission.
