Training and Qualifications

If you are new to health and social care your employer will support you through an induction programme which will lead to a Care Certificate and probably a level 2 qualification.

If you are more experienced or work in a specialist/senior role, you may want to do a level 3 qualification.

If you already have a level 3 qualification there are still lots of opportunities to undertake specialist training or management options.

For those wanting to develop management skills there are three pathways available on the level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care or degree programme.

To help you understand what qualification would be right for you or your work setting, visit Skills for Care.
