Health & Social Care

A career in Health & Social Care

“The best way to train for a career in Health and Social Care is to become an Apprentice. You can do this at any age from 16 years upwards”

Careers in healthcare are concerned with helping people suffering from physical or mental health problems or who are vulnerable in the community. This can cover a broad spectrum of patient’s needs, ages and conditions.

In considering a career in this sector, it will be important to understand the type of person you are – your values and attitude; how you treat and respect people in need of your trust and support. You may be responsible for their well being and comfort.

You can gain your qualification with JACE Training who will also help you find employment. Typically, this will be in a care home, local community, hospital, clinic or potentially someone’s home (domiciliary care).

Level 2 Diploma

Level 2 will suit a care worker or someone looking for their first care job. If you’re already working in care, you probably work mainly under supervision. You want to increase your skills and take on more responsibility.

Level 3 Diploma

Level 3 is ideal if you’re a care worker and you have some responsibility in your workplace. You sometimes work without supervision. You want to develop or demonstrate your skills, perhaps to become a senior care

You can apply to JACE all year round. No need to wait – get in touch today!
