Our teaching and learning is rated GOOD by OFSTED and 85% of our learners achieve merit or distinction grades at end point assessment.
We can tailor the content of each Adult Care Worker Apprenticeship to reflect the needs and specialisms of your care service. We offer a choice of three pathways and these are reflected in the choice of Level 2 Diploma in Care units that are selected and completed by your employee / apprentice.
