About this course

This apprenticeship is for experienced care workers who are recognised as a lead practitioner within their care team and wish to hone their leadership skills.

As part of their role, they’ll promote and sustain a values-based culture within your organisation. This programme is suitable for those employees who have achieved a good level of self-development and have specialist skills and knowledge.

This will allow them to lead in areas such as care needs assessment, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and enablement, telecare and assistive technology.

The varied content covers the statutory frameworks, standards, guidance and Codes of Practice which underpin practice and the safe delivery of services. Your apprentice will study how to mentor colleagues to encourage clients to actively participate in the way their care and support is delivered, and provide leadership and mentoring to others.

Further areas of learning include communication, dignity and human rights, safeguarding, health and wellbeing, and professional development. This apprenticeship is suitable for people already working in a senior role within health and social care.
