Health & Social Care Apprenticeships at Interserve Learning & Employment Birmingham

Course description

If you like to care for others, giving dignity, respect and practical support to people who are vulnerable, sick or disabled, then working in health and social care could be just the job. Looking after people can be personally rewarding and with these Apprenticeships you not only earn a wage but learn and train towards industry recognised qualifications which are valued by employers.

esg is a leading Apprenticeship provider and we have some fantastic opportunities available NOW across the country for people to work in various roles in leading care homes, community settings and day centres.

These are full time jobs with training towards recognised vocational qualifications, so you will learn how to do the job as you do it. You will be employed from day one and receive a real wage, so there's no need to get into debt at college because you are getting paid to study.

esg Apprenticeships in health and social care are designed to give apprentices the knowledge, skills and experience to meet the essential criteria set out by the CQC for anyone working in the industry.

Apprenticeship features

The apprenticeship is available at Intermediate and Advanced levels depending on your age and ability, and includes an NVQ certificate or diploma in health and social care, as well as essential qualifications in maths and English to support your ongoing development. You will be guided by our professional assessors every step of the way who provide one-to-one support and guidance throughout your Apprenticeship.

What skills will I learn?

What you learn will vary depending on the needs of the job and your employer, but you are likely to learn the following:

  • Communication skills
  • Supporting independent living
  • Helping and handling patients get about
  • Mental health awareness
