Getting into work

This training is not an accredited qualification in health and social care. For more information on sponsorships and working rights please visit

To work within social care, you will need to have some checks to make sure you are suitable to work in the sector. This will include something called a Disclosure and Barring System (DBS) check to make sure you can work in social care. 

Certain roles also require Social Care Wales registration.

Guaranteed Interview Scheme

At the end of the three day training you will have access to our Guaranteed Interview Scheme giving you the opportunity to arrange interviews directly with employers signed up to the scheme. You will need to filter these opportunities on the jobs portal here. Remember to read the advert carefully to ensure you meet the essential criteria to apply.

This training has changed my life, I have a great job from the interview scheme.
