Apprenticeships and Qualifications

If you want to make a difference, somewhere in your community there’s a job that you can do to help others. You don’t need any previous qualifications or experience, as you will be supported in the workplace.



An apprenticeship is one of the best ways to get into health and social care. You can get hands on experience, a salary and the opportunity to gain qualifications while you work.

Anyone living in England, over 16 years of age and not in full time education can apply for an apprenticeship!
