Skills for Work

Are you interested in working in the adult social care sector?

Skills for Work will be delivering the Care Certificate, an agreed set of standards delivering the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by Health and Social Care practitioners in the UK. These 15 standards are designed to make sure those that work in Health and Social Care have the correct knowledge to offer high-quality care.

A SkillsHouse adviser will support you through the 'Step into Care' programme and upon completion match you to available Care roles and prepare you for interview.

The course is designed for people aged 19 and over and who are unemployed. Up to 60% of the work will be online and laptops will be provided. Classroom work will be delivered at Chapel Street in Little Germany, Bradford.

If you secure employment after completing the two week 'Step into Care' programme, you will also receive a £50 shopping voucher!
