Lead Adult Care Worker, Apprenticeship

What will I do on this course?

Upon completion of this standard, you will have responsibility for providing supervision, frontline leadership, guidance and direction for others, or working autonomously, exercising judgement and accountability. As a lead adult care worker you will make a positive difference to someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional or intellectual challenges, enabling service users to maintain their independence, dignity and control.

Lead adult care workers will in some circumstances have delegated responsibility for the standard of care provided and may supervise the work of other care workers. You will study a range of criteria in order to complete the apprenticeship standard, including promoting personal development in care settings, effective handling of information and responsibilities of a care worker.

How will I be assessed?

The employer, training provider and apprentice will agree when you are ready to undertake your independent end point assessment which will assess the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for this role.

What could I do after this course?

You may choose to progress to a degree in Integrated Mental Health and Social Care or Health and Social Care Practice at University Centre Weston, or a higher level apprenticeship such as the Level 5 Leader in Care standard. This would enable you to further your professional development and work towards a management role.
