Social Care Apprenticeships
Level 3 Lead Adult Care Worker
The Skills Network's Level 3 Apprenticeship for Adult Care Workers covers all adult care practices, principles and standards. Apprentices will grow their leadership skills, confidence, professionalism and adaptability, ensuring they become a valued leader in any workforce.
The Skills Network offers individualised learning to each Apprentice, and heavily involves the employer with all curriculum scoping to ensure progress is meaningful. In addition, the curriculum scoping exercise provides an opportunity to review prior learning and completed qualifications, with the aim of personalising Apprenticeships to support and enhance your business, and therefore your Apprentices’ progress and progression.
We have the ability to individualise every Apprentices scheme of work to produce a bespoke delivery plan tailored around the individuals need by incorporating content from our e-learning catalogue giving a more enhanced Apprenticeship and experience for the Apprentice.
Prior attainment is carefully considered from the start to ensure time on programme is maximised. The Skills Network offers strong IAG to ensure that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey.
Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:
- It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in Maths and English (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their apprenticeship training. For those apprentices who are yet to achieve a level 2 in Maths and English will have the opportunity to complete these qualifications during their apprenticeship. However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their end-point assessment.
During the duration of the apprenticeship your staff will develop a range of new knowledge, skills and behaviours which will add significant value to each apprentices overall learning, progress and development. Examples include:
- How to create and develop a care plan based on the person’s preferences in the way they want to be supported
- How to communicate clearly both verbally and non-verbally and able to influence others to maximise the quality of interaction
- What to do when there is an accident or sudden illness and take appropriate action
- Implement/facilitate the specialist assessment of social, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals with cognitive, sensory and physical impairments
- Demonstrate and ensure that records and reports are written clearly and concisely
- Carry out fire safety procedures and manage others to do so
