The health and social care sector is one of the most rewarding career routes you can take. With over 350 roles to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to put your skills and passion for care. For people who enjoy caring and supporting others, a career in a care support role can be a fantastic option. But, what exactly is care support? Let’s make things clearer!

In partnership with Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, Springpod has created a virtual work experience opportunity to make your first steps into health and social care so much easier. By giving you access to leading experts and industry professionals in the region, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in a unique and immersive virtual work experience that’ll give you all the information you’ll need to make your next steps in a care support role.

What's included
This programme will cover many diverse roles and pathways that make up care support. By giving you an insight into the core aspects, areas, and responsibilities within these professions, you’ll get a closer look at how people in these roles use their varied skillset to provide top-quality care and support to people who need their help. Along the way, you’ll have the chance to participate in activities that’ll put you in the hot seat, test your knowledge on some great quizzes, and speak to inspiring care individuals in live webinars.

Introduction to Health and Social Care

We’re all a little familiar with health and social care, even if we’re a little hazy on some of the finer details or roles that are involved. This module will make it all a lot easier to understand - we’ll cover the different areas of care, and highlight some of the key values needed in care support.

Aqsa Saleemi, Year 12 Student

Thank you for all your time and effort. The program was by far the best experience I’ve had virtually compared to other virtual experiences I’ve done. I liked the layout and the interactive activities, and I learnt a lot I didn’t know. I would definitely recommend this program to others; it was a great experience I would love to do it all again.
