Our Health and Social Care intermediate apprenticeship lasts approximately 13 months. During the apprenticeship the learner completes practical on-the-job training to get real experience and improve their skills. Learners also study the underpinning theory behind their job role to help them understand their job, resulting in increased motivation, ambition and productivity.

Daily activities of a Health and Social Care Level 2 learner could include:

  • Assisting vulnerable adults with personal care tasks
  • Medication management
  • Seizure management

Once the apprenticeship has been achieved, the learner has the opportunity to advance to further education and qualifications, such as a Health and Social Care level 3 Apprenticeship.

This helps them to progress their career to senior roles such as senior care Assistant or senior team leader or a wide range of other managerial roles within the health and social care sector.

Composition of the qualification

During the level 2 apprenticeship learners complete the following qualifications:

  • Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care
  • Level 2 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care
  • Level 1 Functional Skills

The diploma is built from a selection of mandatory and optional units. Prevista works alongside the learner and employer to ensure the right units are selected for the individual and their job role, maximising the positive impact for both the learner and employer.

Tutors will deepen the learner’s knowledge, understanding and experience of equality and diversity, and ensure well-being and personal safety is embedded into training, for example by teaching them their roles and responsibilities around safeguarding.
