Health & Social Care Programmes

People working in adult social care must have the right skills and knowledge to provide high-quality care and support. Everyone should be able to participate in learning and development to make sure they can carry out their role effectively.

  • Social care is about supporting people to maintain their independence, dignity and control. This includes providing personal and practical support to help people live their lives.
  • Social care workers could be supporting someone with a range of disabilities, dementia or mental health conditions. They could be working in a care home, in the local community or from someone’s home.
  • There are many different roles in social care depending on what you want to do, who you want to work with and where you’d like to work.
