Being on the traineeship at LifeSkills has enabled me to update my Maths and English and learn about new things such as; British values and money management
If you are interested in a career in looking after/caring for children/young people and adults then this could be the course for you.
The level one and level two courses will develop your knowledge and awareness of the types of jobs and provision in the Health, Social Care and Children’s and Young People’s sector. It includes the roles played by workers, from principles and values through to health and safety and working with others; as well as core knowledge, relevant to health and social care, alongside generic employability skills which are needed both in the health and social care sector and across other sectors.
There is the option to take units in more specialised areas such as learning disability, sensory loss or mental health.
The level one course does not qualify you to work but does provide a starting point for deciding whether a career in the sector is right for you. The qualification also supports progression to Level 2 qualifications in health, social care or children’s settings and provides learners with the opportunity to progress to employment, in due course, in a range of job roles in the care sectors or support your progression into a Level 3 course or apprenticeship
