With unprecedented training opportunities and job development, the successful completion of social care courses offers you a range of valuable career options. Whilst many people are keen to work in the healthcare and social care sectors, few realize that there is an array of government­ funded training courses available. 

If you’re considering starting work in the healthcare industry or you want to embark on a new career, undertaking a fully funded or part­ funded social care course could be a great way to get started. As well as providing you with the knowledge you’ll need to enter the industry, you’ll receive professional training in order to develop the practical skills you’ll require when working in social care. 

Managing a career transition

Whilst you may be keen to enroll in health and social care courses, many potential trainees worry about the commitment required. If you’re working in an existing role, already undertaking alternative study and/or caring for your family, you may be wondering how you can fit social care courses into your busy schedule. 

In fact, there are numerous ways to take part in social care training, many of which can be adapted to suit your particular needs. You may want to enroll in an intensive social care course, which will furnish you with the skills and information you need in a short space of time. With the option to undertake training quickly and efficiently, you can obtain a social care certification with minimal impact on your home life or existing job role. Furthermore, undertaking an intensive training course enables you to enter the sector more quickly and begin your career in the healthcare industry. 

However, if the idea of fast-paced training isn’t right for you or your lifestyle, there are plenty of other options to consider. You may prefer to undertake social care training at a more relaxed pace, for example, and attend regular sessions to enhance your knowledge over a longer timeframe. With fewer requirements per week, you can stagger your training and fit your certification around your existing commitments.

Alternatively, the option of e-learning and online training can make entering the healthcare industry far easier than ever before. Whether you choose a training course which is delivered completely online or a course which supplements face to face practical training with e­ learning, you can fit a significant amount of training around your existing job role and family commitments, as well as learning from the comfort of your own home. 

Launching a career in social care

However, you choose to undertake your training, it’s the first step in building a successful and rewarding career in the social care industry. Working with like­minded individuals, you’ll have the opportunity to deliver care to a range of patients and clients. With the added option of specializing in a particular area, you can follow your passion and develop the skills needed to deliver exemplary care in particular environments, such as residential social care, or equip yourself to work with particularly vulnerable patients or clients.
