4 Benefits of studying the Foundation Apprenticeship Social Services and Healthcare The Foundation Apprenticeship programme in Social Services and Healthcare is designed to meet the needs of employers both locally and nationally. Employers highly value the employability skills developed through similar courses (such as NPA and SVQ programmes) as they equip learners with the skills and knowledge for the realities of the workplace. The completion of this course will demonstrate to employers that you have the vocational skills and the ability to succeed in the health and social care sector. You would have the opportunity to experience further education level study in health and social care that is not available in schools. This can give you an advantage when progressing to college, university or applying for an apprenticeship and will add value to your C.V. or course application personal statement. Course Summary The course incorporates NPA (National Progression Award) Social Services and Healthcare and SVQ Social Services and Healthcare. The Foundation Apprenticeship is made up of 5 x units of study. It is a nationally recognised qualification which provides students with an understanding of the values and principles which underpin health and social care. The course will prepare students for entry into employment and develop the skills appropriate for working in care settings and provide opportunities for progression to NQ, HNC or degree level studies. The fundamental principles of health and social care will be developed along with the knowledge, theory and practice to equip candidates to work effectively in a range of work settings.
