Health and Social Care

Level 2 Standard – Adult Care Worker

Adult Care Workers need to have the right values and behaviours to demonstrate competencies and skills to provide high-quality, compassionate care and support. They are frontline staff who help adults with care and support needs to achieve their personal goals and live as independently and safely as possible, enabling them to have the control and choice in their lives which is at the heart of person-centred care. Job roles are varied, determined by and relevant to the type of service being provided and the person supported. Our Level 2 Apprentice can train for a variety of roles in residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres and some clinical healthcare settings.

Level 3 Standard – Lead Adult Care Worker

Lead Adult Care Workers are tasked with the challenge of making a positive difference in someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional or intellectual challenges. They are expected to exercise judgment and take appropriate action to support individuals to maintain their independence, dignity, and control. By providing leadership, guidance, and direction at the front line of care delivery, the lead care worker is instrumental in improving the health and well-being of those receiving care and support. Lead Adult Care Workers will in some circumstances have delegated responsibility for the standard of care provided and may supervise the work of other care workers.


The higher apprenticeship provides the skills and knowledge needed to manage and lead others in a health and social care setting. This course covers aspects such as safeguarding and protection, managing care services, as well as developing best practice and policy. Entrants to the higher apprenticeship will likely be an employer and have some responsibility for the management of the workplace.
