Aimed at managers or senior practitioners who lead social care provision in an adult or children and young people’s setting; the course is ideal for individuals who want to take their career to the next stage.
“Our new Health and Social Care Higher Apprenticeship delivered by our award-winning trainer-assessors will help those who are ready to climb the care career ladder gain the necessary skills and knowledge needed to accelerate their role to the next level,” says Jill Whittaker, managing director of Connect 2 Care’s parent companyHIT Training.
“All of our trainer-assessors have worked in the industry and know exactly what makes a successful staff member. Using their practical knowledge and experience in the health and care field, our trainers are best placed to guide and develop the expertise of staff on any Connect 2 Care training programme.”
