Apprenticeships in the care sector

Career changers welcome

We welcome people looking to start a new career. Qualifications and experience are good, but what’s really important is a caring, can-do attitude. You can choose to start out on our apprenticeship scheme. Or you can go straight into your chosen role. Either way, you’ll get great training and become part of a supportive, friendly team. And you’ll have opportunities to grow in your role and progress to senior positions.

Returning to work?

Looking to return to work after a break? Perhaps you’ve brought up a family and want a role that still offers flexibility and a good work-life balance. Many of our care team members fall into this category. We really value their life experience – as the skills they’ve gained outside work are just as relevant in our care homes. In return, we offer flexible hours, good pay and a close-knit, friendly environment.

The Care UK Learning Academy
