About C2C

Connect2Care (C2C) is the leading specialist training and apprenticeship provider for the Health and Social Care and Early Years sectors.

At Connect2Care we have a positive vision of what apprenticeships can do: improve individual's skills and therefore their life chances; make businesses more efficient; and boost the economy. People are at the centre of everything we do; that goes for our own staff as well as those we serve. We take pride in helping people become the best they can be.

C2C trains professional staff in residential care and nursing homes throughout the country. As a wholly owned subsidiary of leading training provider Hospitality Industry Training (HIT), C2C and HIT frequently work together in the same care organisations.  With a strong local focus, C2C offers Health and Social Care apprenticeships at all levels up to Registered Manager whilst also offering qualifications to train and develop professions allied to care via the Healthcare Support Services qualifications and other non-care specific qualifications.

We are dedicated to the health and social care sector and all our professional trainers have substantial appropriate experience from working within the care world. We firmly believe in putting the client at the heart of everything we do and work closely with managers of care providers to analyse their training requirements. This enables C2C to meet the current needs of their staff and plan their development for the future.

We consistently achieve a higher than average success rate of apprenticeship completion. More than 70% of C2C apprentices complete their apprenticeship and obtain either a BTEC or City & Guilds diploma.

Since 2006 we have supported 20,000 learners at over 10,000 employer sites across the country. We hold two Grade 2 ‘Good’ OFSTED inspections.

Our aims are simple: 

  • to help employers increase the effectiveness and profitability of their staff
  • to develop learners' personal, economic and social status 
  • to enhance the level of service given to customers and clients.

This is reflected in the success of our learners and the quantifiable improvements and benefits for their employers. Well trained, competent staff are a valuable asset and can help a business perform well by delivering improved efficiency, better customer service and reduced staff turnover.

We always remember that the care world is very much a team environment, and the team is only as strong as its weakest member. With that in mind, the benefits of training are clear – no one role is more important than another.
