You will need to attend a formal interview and skills assessment at the College. You will also need to secure a work placement before starting an apprenticeship, although the College can assist you with this.
Apprentices attend college full time for the first four weeks to study preliminary units of the programme. For the rest of the programme, you will spend four days in your work placement and one day in college each week.
If you are already employed, you will attend college one day a week from the start of your programme.
While at the College, you will study for a technical certificate and learn key skills. Your NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care is undertaken in the workplace.
A range of assessments will be an important part of this qualification, including work placement observations, on-line computerised testing, oral questioning, professional discussions and assignments.
Successful completion of this apprenticeship enables you to progress on to Advanced programmes. These apprenticeships are an excellent gateway to permanent employment.
