Health and Social Care - Higher Apprenticeship - Level 4

Overview

This qualification is designed to equip health and social care practitioners with the skills and knowledge needed to care for others in a broad range of health or social care settings.

What will I study?

You will study a number of units including the following:

  • The role of a health and social care worker
  • Health and safety
  • Equality and inclusion
  • Personal development

Entry requirements

You will need to be aged 16 years and over and in a senior position with a Level 3 Lead Adult Care Worker or equivalent role.

You will need to be working within a health and social care environment for a minimum of 16 hours per week.

You will undertake a Level 2 diagnostic assessment for maths and English prior to enrolment. You will need to achieve a minimum of a 50% score in both subjects to ensure a place on the apprenticeship programme. If you has passed maths and English GCSE with a grade A* to C or Key skills at level 2, you will be required to evidence this with a certificate/s which will then result in exemption from undertaking the maths and English functional skills qualification within the apprenticeship framework.

Study programmes - essential skills for employment

This is to help improve your chances of employment once you leave us.

In addition, to help you gain essential skills for employment, all students aged 19 and under and studying a full-time course with us will take part in our study programmes.
