Reality Check

The Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage guide (ANMW):

Skills Required

  • No experience required but you must have the desire to learn new skills
  • The ability to work as part of a team and individually and the ability to prioritise and plan around customers' needs

Qualities Required

  • We are looking for someone with a caring nature, an approachable attitude and commitment and passion to providing high quality care

Qualifications Required

  • None required as full training will be provided but GCSE's (or equivalent) at grade A-C/8-4 in English and maths would be an advantage

Training Provided

  • Level 2 Adult Care Worker Apprenticeship
  • Apprenticeship standards are aimed at developing skills within the apprentices’ chosen career route, each standard has set knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be successful within the job role. This will include the completion of functional skills in maths and English
  • Once the apprentice has completed a minimum of 12 months training and the employer and Babcock regional trainer confirm they have met all the requirements of the standard they will be put through to end point assessment. The end point assessment is independent from the training and includes a variety of assessment methods which test the skills and knowledge of the apprentice to ensure they are fully competent in their role
  • Each apprentice will be supported throughout the apprenticeship by a structured programme of teaching, e-learning, 1-1 training and mentoring; this will encourage and help them to meet the requirements of the new standards and will prepare them for the end of point assessment
