By completing this apprenticeship, you will have the knowledge and skills needed to become a successful Healthcare Support Worker. You will work as part of a team, and receive support and knowledge from trained professionals, while earning a wage.

Learners enrolled onto the L2 HCSW Apprenticeship will be employed in Health or Social Care by a regional industry employer. This will enable you to learn the practical skills and behaviours needed to be successful in industry, while learning the underpinning knowledge to support your practice.

What does the course involve?

Upon completion of this apprenticeship, you will be able to demonstrate a range of excellent skills, knowledge, and behaviours in your role as a healthcare support worker. You will be equipped to work as part of a team providing high-quality and compassionate care, carry out well-defined routine clinical duties and prepare individuals for healthcare activities.

You will be able to work effectively as part of a team. You will always act within the limits of your competence, knowing who to ask for help and support if you are not sure. You will work within agreed ways of working, following the relevant standards, policies and protocols used in your workplace including the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England. During the first part of this apprenticeship you will be supported to achieve the Care Certificate which forms part of your induction and covers the fundamental skills needed to provide quality care.

How will the course be assessed?

To achieve this apprenticeship, the employer, your assessor and you will agree when you are ready and competent to undertake your independent end-point assessment, which will assess the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for this role.

What future study opportunities and careers are there?

Upon completion, you may choose to progress to a higher-level apprenticeship such as the Level 3 Senior Healthcare Support Worker. This would enable you to further your professional career development and potentially work toward securing a senior healthcare assistant role.
