Health and Social Care Apprenticeships and Traineeships in the UK

Apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities in the Health and Social Care sector covering a wide range of job roles on two pathways, the adult social care pathway and the health care pathway, working in the NHS, the private sector, UK local authorities or in voluntary sectors. Within the NHS, the apprenticeship route is very well structured and is designed to lead towards employment at its conclusion. There are three levels of apprenticeship available:

- Intermediate level apprentices - work-based learning leading to NVQ Level 2 and Key Skills certification
- Advanced level apprentices – work-based learning leading to NVQ Level 3 and BTECs
- Higher Apprenticeships – leading to NVQ Level 4 qualifications or foundation degrees


If you are mostly interested in becoming a social care apprentice then the relevant framework you should look for with an employer would be Skills for Care, which also offers funding support.

This is also a sector where there are many opportunities to work abroad as part of a gap year. Some of our partners offer community work and social care positions for volunteers in regions as diverse as South America, Asia and Africa which involve proper training and certification before placement.
