Apprentice Level 3
Advanced Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care
You’re a compassionate, can-do person with a Level 2 vocational qualification in Health and Social Care. You know what it takes to be a good carer – you understand that older, vulnerable people have a right to receive care in a safe, dignified way. Now you want to build your career and gain further care qualifications, earning as you learn. You want to progress quickly, develop your leadership skills and explore exciting career pathways with a supportive employer.
Your Level 3 Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care
The Care UK apprenticeship programme starts with a 12-week induction, combining practical training with e-learning. Once you’ve completed this, you’ll start on the job, taking responsibility for leading and managing your care team. You’ll make sure each resident receives high quality care in a safe manner – according to their personal care plan. At the same time you’ll be a role model to your colleagues. We’ll expect you to motivate, mentor and train your team members to help them develop professionally.

- Where you'll work
Hadrian House in Gateshead is a warm and welcoming care home.
In fact, residents and their families often compare us to a hotel (just take a look at our testimonials)
We offer cosy and inviting lounges, beautifully furnished ensuite bedrooms, delicious meals and plenty of fun activities, and underpinning it all is our commitment to superb care.
At Hadrian House we provide a wide range of care for older people, from short respite stays to give family carers some well-deserved time off, through to full time residential care.
When you set foot inside Hadrian House we think you’ll be surprised by the happy atmosphere here. As soon as we know a person will be joining us, we start getting to know them. This goes beyond their physical needs, to their personality, what they like to do, where they used to live, their hobbies and interests. Then we set about creating a care plan that’s unique to them.
We plan activities around their interests. We create menus to include the dishes they enjoy. And if someone wants to get involved in helping out around the home, then they’re more than welcome to help us to water plants, do some recycling or lay the table for dinner. It all adds up to an environment where residents feel involved, cared for – and happy.
Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
