Adult Social Care Sector


The Apprenticeship framework contributes towards developing a social care sector with as skilled, flexible and effective workforce whilst maintaining high quality and safe care for those use use services. Through completion of this Apprenticeship, learners will gain high level skills, thus increasing access to Further Education and Higher Education. Adult social care employers are increasingly looking to Apprenticeships, and in particular the social care pathway of the Health and Social Care framework, as a way to effectively train their workforce and new staff. Research conducted by Skills for Care in 2011 highlighted that 15% of employers had an immediate need for a framework at Level 5 and 38% indicatied they could see a clear need in the future. As the demands on the sector increse, so does the need for higher level skills. 




Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry conditions for this framework. Individuals about to undertake this framework must, however, work in job roles which are appropriate for the framework and which will allow them to gather the evidence necessary for the qualifications and components which form a part of the framework. Potential apprentices should be willing to undergo an enhanced CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check. Employers in social care carry out CRB checks, as this is a requirement, and certain offences may disqualify potential apprentices from employment in these sectors and thus automatically preclude them from completing the framework. Potential apprentices should therefore discuss any relevant matters with their employer prior to enrolment.
