Apprenticeships have recently changed

What are the new apprenticeships in adult social care?

  • Lead Adult Care Worker (level 3)
  • Leader in Adult Care (level 5). This incorporates both managers and advanced practitioners

The end point assessment will be a multiple choice test and professional discussion. The endpoint assessment and diploma can be studied in parallel, but both must be achieved to meet the Apprenticeship standard. The assessment will demonstrate that the apprentice can apply their knowledge, skills and behaviours in an integrated way and will satisfy the requirements for the award of an Apprenticeship certificate. These tests will be graded.

A table that outlines what is included in the apprenticeship and how it will be assessed can be found below.
