On the 6th of February 2023, Sarah Wood our careers adviser, Amanda Devlin our lecturer in apprenticeships, and a former Stanmore student spoke to our Level 1 and 2 Health and Social Care students about the different apprenticeships on offer.
There are different types of care work, including:
• hospital settings
• residential homes for the elderly
• mental health
Former student, Sylwia, completed her level 2 apprenticeship in care with us and has since progressed onto a level 4 specialising in chemotherapy day care.
Apprenticeships in the Care industry require different tasks to be completed to successfully achieve the apprenticeship qualification:
- mandatory units
- witness testimonies
- written communication
- oral communication
- written test
- verbal professional discussion
Students then qualify for their certificates and can move onto a higher apprenticeship or better job roles. Stanmore College has a careers team available to help any student considering the next move.
