An apprenticeship is a work based learning programme at level three where the learner is earning while learning.
The programme is aimed at learners over the age of 18 currently working in the health and social care sector in roles such as a social care worker, healthcare support worker or healthcare assistant.
The programme is ideally suited to employees who have some element of responsibility within their job role. Apprentices are employed and receive at least the minimum apprenticeship wage.
They attend college on a regular basis and should achieve a level three apprenticeship framework within the agreed timescale.
