About the course
The lead practitioner in adult care level 4 will guide, inspire and help you to support team members to make a positive differences to someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional, psychological or intellectual challenges.
Throughout the apprenticeship you’ll learn new knowledge, skills and behaviours to help you mentor and support others. There’s the opportunity to specialise in topics that will help you to lead in areas such as care needs assessment, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and enablement and assistive technology.
The apprenticeship is 18 months in total with a 15 month practical learning programme and then up to 3 months for the End Point Assessment. We deliver throughout the year meaning you can start the programme when you want and when it meets your needs, rather than wait for a particular time in the year.
Training is delivered both on-the-job and off-the-job. You’ll receive workplace teaching and observations as well as joining webinars, virtual one-to-one sessions, completing online learning and independent tasks
This course is cost-free to learners. All our programmes are regulated and funded through the government or the apprenticeship levy.
