What is Care?

If you are new to working in care

This video will help you to have an understanding of what it is to work in care, the type of roles this could include and the skills you will use.

What is Care?

There are many activities that you may be involved in.  The videos and resources below will give you a flavour of some of the essential roles in care. After watching the videos if you  need help, the Workforce Development team are on hand to answers your questions.

We would like to reassure you that the training videos are only an introduction to working in social care, further training and guidance will be given in the workplace and as part of this you will be given the opportunity to ‘buddy’ up with an experienced carer who you will shadow until you gain the experience and confidence.

There is UK Government guidance for those working in care homes providing information on how to work safely during the period of sustained transmission of COVID-19
