Working in Adult Care is so much more than just a job - you’re helping people lead an independent life, regain their dignity and live how they choose. 96% of Social Care workers said they feel their work makes a real difference - there’s no getting away from the numerous benefits of working in Adult Social Care. Starting out in the Social Care sector also couldn’t be more accessible - if you have the desire to provide emotional, physical and social support to help people lead a more independent life, then you’re already half way there.
The good news is that you don’t have to spend upwards of 3 years studying at University, racking up tens-of-thousands-of pounds worth of debt to develop the skills and knowledge to work in Adult Social Care. Many of those working in Social Care, especially within the NHS benefit from having a Level 3 Diploma. You’ll understand the key elements required in care - including mental health awareness, stress, phobias, anxiety, eating disorders, post-natal depression and schizophrenia.
