Apprenticeships can also help those working in adult social care to formalise their knowledge and progress their career.
Anyone living in England, over 16 years of age and not in full-time education can apply for an Apprenticeship, whether you are just leaving school, have been working for years, or are seeking to start a new career; there is no upper age limit.
