Make Care Matter /  Apprenticeships


Are you interested in a career in adult social care? Do you want to gain valuable skills, experience, and knowledge whilst earning a salary? Then an adult social care apprenticeship might be the perfect opportunity for you.

At the North Yorkshire Council, we offer apprenticeships that provide a real job with quality training, leading to nationally recognized qualifications. Our apprenticeships are available at different levels, from intermediate to advanced. Should your job role require further qualifications, North Yorkshire Council offers apprenticeships from level four to seven to provide you with the skills you need to take on managerial responsibilities.

An apprenticeship with us means you will be working at least 30 hours a week, receiving a minimum of 12 months of training, and allocated study time. The training is a mix of on-the-job training and classroom learning, with around 20% of your working hours spent on studying towards your qualification.
