Support Worker apprenticeships with Hft are a way of undertaking a nationally recognised training and development programme focused on you gaining a Care Certificate, skills, experience, and a Health and Social Care Diploma, while working full time. And of course earning a full adult wage at the same time!
At Hft, we’ve supported the government’s drive to achieve three million apprenticeship starts in the public and private sectors by 2020. Our first apprentice under the new scheme started in August 2017 and today we have over 600 apprentices across the organisation – around 20% of our workforce, which is an incredible achievement for our sector.
Paid apprenticeships are a great option for people who are new to the social care sector, or who now want to work towards a formal qualification, perhaps to help further their career. What’s important to us is that applicants share our values, and our commitment to seeing the people we support achieve the best possible outcomes.
