Health and Social Care Apprenticeship

Health and Social Care Apprenticeship

There is no better time to embrace Health and Social Care Apprenticeship than now because the current administration might decrease government  spending and if this happens, more people will be added to the unemployment data. So if you’re unemployed or you are not satisfied with your current income and work responsibility, you need to start thinking outside the box.

From statistics, it’s harder for newly inexperienced workers to break even in a highly competitive workforce market environment because the older ones are proven and more experienced so you need to start considering other options.

To raise more funds that will sustain the Government spending on security, the effect of Brexit, the need to maintain the health care reform of the incoming Government and the UK interest in international relations. It is expected that the incoming government will increase the tax on both individual and businesses.

If taxation is increased to 50%, most people are of the belief that it will be better to stay at home than going to work at all. But that wouldn’t be the solution to the impending economic problems. Putting some other factors into consideration, we have come up with the recommendation that people should start considering Health and Social Care Apprenticeships opportunities

The Health and Social Care Apprenticeships market in the UK

Data from a report by the Resolution Foundation think-tank stipulates that one in seven Britons will be 75 years by 2040. Same report also shows that the average age in the UK has exceeded 40 years which indicates an interesting fact that the life expectancy of the average Briton has increase.

This of course poses a great challenge to the UK economy as well as provides variable opportunities to those who can think out of the box

The increase in the aging population of the UK ignites the demand for more people to into Health and Social Care Apprenticeships so we could get qualified workforce that will bridge the gap between effective care giving service delivery and customer satisfaction

Population growth in the UK

The death rate has drastically reduced because of advanced medical technology that is available. This has spiked the entire population of people in the UK between 1975 and 2016. The population that is 65 years and older has increased from 14.1% to 17.8% and it is expected to increase by the year 2045. In relation to the increase of the elderly in the United Kingdom, the need for Health, and Social Care Apprenticeships cannot be overemphasized. In line with this trend and equipped with extensive research, we have initiated a unique strategy geared towards getting more people to embrace this career part

There is need for the following home care problems to be addressed if more people can choose the Health and Social Care Apprenticeship program

Inefficient Continuum Care

While it is a fact that a reasonable percentage of people 65 and older need efficient long-term care, unfortunately above 80% of the elderly live on their own and can only have access to intermittent and inadequate care. It is paramount that an affordable and continuous care is readily accessible and affordable with new solutions to guide them through best practices in preserving their health and ensuring that the younger generation is focused on being productive in the workplace. This challenge has lingered because people tend to neglect the home care industry without knowing that it has the potentials of providing full payment opportunities

Preventable Medication Errors and Domestic Accidents:

Improper care coordination is the cause for medication errors among the elderly and the occurrence of falls (domestic accidents) among adults over 65 years which has increased tremendously. These events can be prevented by professionals who understand the clinical changes among the elderly; blood pressure, purse, and weight, negative medication adherence, and organ malfunctions; chest pain, shortness of breath, swelling. With proven and adequate training in the Health and Social Care Apprenticeships, these challenges can be resolved and the service providers will have job satisfaction

Minimized Tech Barriers:

With adequate manpower in the health sector of our economy, the deployment and installation of advanced technology for patients in need of round-the-clock care can be available: this may include the following:

  • Installation of Personal Response Systems and
  • Installation of Telehealth systems

Advantages of the health and Social Care Apprenticeship Program

One unique advantage of becoming a social care apprentice is that you will be earning some amount of money as you undergo your training. In addition to this, you have the assurance of getting a secured employment upon completion of the program.

Another advantage is the sustainability of this career part because the population of the elderly in the United States is increasing by the day as justified by various research groups

The social care apprenticeship program is well structured that you will get all information needed to seamlessly take care of the elderly as you will be provided with the opportunity of working alongside a professional caregiver

This is the time to think outside the box because it’s been proven that in tough times, fortunes can be made by satisfying the need of the people. Social care workers are limited, and the opportunities in the industry are enormous.

For people who have a steady job, the social care apprenticeship program provides you the opportunity of learning and building a part-time business on the side which is also lucrative. These expenses that are cutting into your income like home upkeep, travel expenses, etc. can be taking care of by this second income stream

 

How to start your career in Health and Social Care

The first step in achieving success in the health and social care sector is to make the decision on the type of clients you will want to work with because the social care sector is very vast. It includes and not limited to taking care of:

  • The elderly
  • The disabled (includes learning disabilities)
  • Specialized care (including people with mental disorders, dementia or stroke)
  • Young adults and children

To propel your career in the Health and Social care, you should be enrolled in the following courses

The Intermediate Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care

After participating in this course, you will obtain Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care, a certificate in preparing to work in Adult Social Care. You should also have at least a Level 1 English and Mathematics Functional Skill or the GCSE

The Advanced Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care

You will have the opportunity to obtain a Level 3 Diploma which involves training the participant to provide support, carry out clinical care as well as give care to in hospitals and communities. There are different units and aspects of the course which depends on the health institution offering it.

The British Higher Apprenticeship in Care Leadership and Management

Depending on the provider, you may be giving options of specialization which involves, the elderly, adults and children. This diploma is designed for people with reasonable experience in the social care sector because they wouldn’t need direct supervision. The Level 5 is designed for you to work and with a degree of responsibility and independence

For most providers, you need to have experience working as a team leader, home care organizer, senior care worker or a community support worker

The opportunities in the Health and Social care industry are much, and the workforce is limited, hence the need for people to choose this career path. With consistency in the industry, you have the opportunity of taking management positions or teaching roles. The choice is yours.
