This course is designed for learners who are already working and would like to gain a nationally recognised qualification at Level 3. Learners will work through competence based units where they will demonstrate their practice and knowledge whilst working with their trainer/ assessor.

Learners will work towards:

Competency: Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England (QCF).

Technical Certificate: Level 3 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care (QCF).

Literacy and Numeracy: Fulfilled by completion of Maths and English at an appropriate level.

ERR: Employment Rights and Responsibilities.

PLTS: Personal Learning and Thinking Skills.

All qualification elements must be achieved to complete the apprenticeship framework.

There are a number of mandatory units in the workplace to be completed. Apprentices will be required to study a number of optional units linked to specific industry requirements.

There is an expectation that candidates will undertake personal study in order to demonstrate knowledge of the subject area, and compile a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their competence.


What qualifications do I need?

Apprentices should be employed within an appropriate Health & Social Care environment. Apprentices will be invited to undertake initial assessment to demonstrate the minimum levels of literacy and numeracy required. Apprentices will be allocated a personal tutor for guidance throughout the duration of the course.


The process of assessment requires the demonstration of skills together with appropriate knowledge and understanding to a specified standard. Assessment of competency is based on a combination of observation, questioning and collection of evidence from the workplace.

Fees & Costs

This course is fully funded if the apprentice is aged under 19. If the apprentice is 19+ then a £750 employer contribution is required. If the apprentice is 19+ please contact us for further information about advanced learner loans.
