Do you know someone who wants a head start to a career in care work? Maybe it’s you….

Can you see yourself helping to support someone with a learning or physical disability to live a safe, fulfilling life….from supporting personal care to accompanying individuals into the community?

HS4LC is offering a great opportunity for people wishing to enter care work to be one step ahead of the competition.

We offer you a programme of 24 hours training at our skills centre in Harrogate, using care industry specific training including mandatory requirements such as Safeguarding, the Mental Capacity Act, Equality & Diversity and Dignity in Care.

Each participant will also receive a minimum 60 hours workplace-based work experience in an adult health and social care setting with coaching & supervision from qualified Health & Social Care professionals.

This hands-on experience will be split 30 hours in a Day Care facility and 30 hours in a residential care setting.

At the end of the programme, you will understand the essential skills required to be a professional Care Worker and you will be supported to apply for care positions in your community, taking advantage of your new training and experience to put you in a confident position of gaining employment.

You will be able to claim travel and childcare for the work experience component of the programme.
