The health and social care sector provides people across the UK with statutory, private and voluntary care services in the three core areas of health, social care and early years.

For various reasons and stages in their lives, some people need support to develop and maintain their independence, dignity and control. Social care provides a whole range of services to support adults and older people. It’s about making a positive difference to people’s lives by contributing to their health, happiness and well-being.

Training and Apprenticeships

Training in the health and social care sector is delivered in a wide range of forms. The Qualification Credit Framework provides a simple and rational framework that presents learner achievement and qualifications in a way that is easy to understand, measure and compare.

It aims to give individuals the opportunity to learn in a more flexible way and enables a wider range of organisations, including employers, to have their training recognised.


Within this framework there are four qualifications available;

  • Level 2 & 3 in Health and Social Care 
  • Level 5 in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young Peoples Service
  • Level 2, 3 & 5 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development
  • Level 3 in Playwork
  • Level 5 in Leadership for Health and Social Care Services — Adult Advance Practice
  • Level 5 in Leadership for Health and Social Care Services — Residential Management

Our experienced Training Officers can help employees choose the right course at the appropriate level to develop their skills and knowledge. These qualifications are delivered in the workplace.

The Apprenticeship, Traineeship and Jobs Growth Wales Programmes, led by the Welsh Government, are supported by the European Social Fund. For further information regarding this, please click here »
