Qualifications and Training
How can I become a Support Worker? What training will I need? What qualifications are available?
You don’t need any specific qualifications to start work for us as a Support Worker, but there are several training options available that will help you progress in your career in social care.
For new recruits, we use the Government-approved Adult Care Apprenticeships to ensure you get trained up and qualified, while you work as a Support Worker at the same rate of pay as your colleagues. It’s a great way of getting on-the-job training while being paid too.
Working towards a vocational qualification such as the Diploma in Health and Social Care at Level 2 or 3 is a great way of building your professional development and gaining the skills needed to deliver excellent support.
