Course overview

This interactive course provides an introduction, and the support needed, to prepare you to work in an adult social care setting. It is suitable for those who need to refresh their knowledge and the inexperienced.

Course description

WEA are working in partnership with GM Careers to deliver this programme. You must live in Manchester to take part in this programme. The course will cover key elements of the Care Certificate (which all social care workers must undertake), it will support you to write a CV and prepare for interviews and it also includes a work placement at the end of the training. You will meet with GM Careers throughout the course to discuss your work placement. We will be learning together as a committed team, with some fun along the way. Once you have completed all of your online training, you will then undergo your voluntary placement in a social care setting – this is designed like a working interview, to give you the opportunity to try out the working environment!

What financial support is available?

We don't want anything to stand in your way when it comes to bringing Adult learning within reach so if you need anything to support you to achieve your goals then speak to one of our education experts during your enrolment journey. Most of our courses are government funded but if you don't qualify or need alternative financial help to access them then let us know.

What other support is available?

All of our digital content, teaching and learning activities and assessments are designed to be accessible so if you need any additional support you can discuss this with the education experts during your enrolment journey and we will do all we can to make sure you have optimal access.
