Undergraduate and post-graduate degree courses in Health and Social Care are available at providers across the country. While these will provide valuable skills, understanding and knowledge when applying for a Support Worker role, they aren’t a requirement for the job.
Courses differ according to the provider, but generally you’ll cover the following:
- ways of working with people with a variety of needs
- policy developments
- social and psychological approaches
- critical issues in care
It’s likely that you’ll also undertake work placements in different settings.
