An apprenticeship means learning on the job, at any age. Apprenticeships are not just for young people. In the health and social care sector older apprentices often have great life experiences to contribute.
For apprenticeships of a higher level, individuals can already be working in the sector, and need to do an apprenticeship to advance career opportunities. However, to complete an apprenticeship, the learner is required to complete 20% “off the job” learning.
This 20% is likely to include the following activities:
- Attending virtual classrooms
- Contributing to forums
- Completing assignments
- Guided reading
- Reflective diaries
- Shadowing other members of the team
- Participating in audits
- Feedback/learning sessions with some of the people the learner supports
We specialise in the delivery of Higher Apprenticeships in the Care Sector.
