  • If not previously achieved or exempt, Level 1- 2 in English and Maths

Assessment

Training and assessments are delivered in the workplace and in college. Apprentices will be required to attend college-based sessions as part of their training, whilst also completing off-the-job training in the workplace. You will also complete assessments and observations in the workplace.

You will need to complete Level 1 Maths and English before taking the End Point Assessments (EPA).

At the end of the apprenticeship you will complete an EPA which consists of:

  • 60- minute multiple- choice test based on real-life situations
  • 45- minute professional discussion with an independent assessor (to take place after the multiple- choice assessment)

Apprentices must complete their Care Certificate prior to the End Point Assessment as this is a mandatory requirement of the final qualification.

Career Progression

Successful candidates may progress within the workplace, such as developing a specialism (e.g. Activity Coordinator or Rehabilitation Worker) or becoming a Team Leader, Lead/ Advanced Practitioner, Social Worker or Occupational Therapist.

Fees

Apprenticeship course fees are subject to the age of the apprentice, and the size of the company.
 
For employers with less than 50 employees who do not pay the apprenticeship levy and who take on an apprentice who is aged between 16-18 at the start of their apprenticeship, there will be no direct cost and the full training costs will be covered by Government funding. If the apprentice is aged 19+ the government partially subsides the training costs and the employer will need to pay 5% of the costs. In the case of this course, the fee would be £200.
 
For an employer with more than 50 employees a 5% charge will be implemented regardless of the age of the apprentice which in this case would be £200.
 
A levy paying company will pay the full cost of the apprenticeship from their levy account which in this case would amount to £4,000.
 
Please note that course fees are to be paid by the employer and apprentices must not be asked to make a financial contribution toward their training.
