Adult Social Care

Are you interested in Adult Social Care?

Luton Adult Learning are running a project with Health Education to support learners to gain Level 1 and Level 2 award in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care. This will equip learners with the knowledge needed to enter adult social care work. Upon completion of each level, you will be awarded a certificate from City & Guilds. Both levels will progress your IT and presentation skills.

For those successful learners, you will have the opportunity to meet with Luton Borough Council and local employers, which could lead to a job opportunity or a volunteering role.
