The adult social care workforce continues to grow year-on-year and is a rapidly growing sector.
* Did you know that the number of social care jobs is estimated to have increased by 15 per cent since 2009? The NHS alone employs more than 2 million people (seven per cent of the total UK workforce) making it the single biggest employer not just in the UK but Europe. A further 1.4m people are employed in the private and social care sectors. A career in Health & Social Care offers long-term employment prospects, with excellent opportunities for promotion and progression.
To cater for the rising number of adults in need of care, it is vital to have workers with the correct and appropriate quali cations in place. You can join the growing healthcare workforce with a recognised Health and Social Care quali cation and gain an enormous sense of personal achievement by making a positive difference to people’s lives.
