An apprenticeship is a way to gain the skills, knowledge and experience you need for a career in care, combining working, training, and study - letting you 'earn while you learn'.

There are many different apprenticeships available in care, and for a wide variety of job roles. As a paid employee, each apprentice works alongside their studies and training costs are funded by the government and your employer.

It’s an ideal option providing you with practical, on-the-job training and classroom-based instruction.

'Sorted' is a Guide produced by Lancashire Work Based Learning forum which shows which courses are available with the selected Training Provider or you can select a course and see which Training Providers run the selected course.
