Is the Course for me?

If you want to work in Adult Social Care this course will provide you with the understanding of the core elements required by the Industry. You must committ to attending this course throughout.

What is involved?

This is an intensive full time course delivered over 2 - 3 weeks. You will attend taught classes and will be required to complete a Workbook which will be assessed. You will be expected to complete work in your own time but staff will be available to support you.


We will help you to apply for jobs within the Care Sector. We work with employers and can fast track you to their vacancies. If you achieve a Level 2 in Literacy and Numeracy and want to work in the NHS we can offer you an additional short course which will prepare you to apply for existing vacancies.

Course Requirements

Some experience of care work either paid, voluntary or family and a genuine desire to work in this area. As this is a Level 2 course you will need a good understanding of English both written and spoken. If you want to eventually work in the NHS you will be required to achieve a Level 2 in a Literacy and Numeracy assessment. An existing qualification in care may be an advantage.
