Information for partners
With changes in the economy and constraints on education and training funding, the choice of career can be daunting.
Working in social care offers both challenges and rewards. Many work opportunities are available regardless of age, previous experience, training and education.
Skills for Care, in partnership with the Department of Health, actively promotes social care apprenticeships. An apprenticeship offers a numbers of benefits including earning a salary whilst receiving training.
The apprenticeship programme is fast becoming one of today's preferred structured career routes. It addresses skills gaps, whilst creating employment opportunities across the social care sector.
The government is one of the driving forces behind apprenticeships and is making significant funding available to both public and private sector care organisations, which in turn creates greater opportunities for those looking for a career in care.
Skills for Care has produced a number of resources to promote Apprenticeships. Please click on the link above to view.
