Make a New Career with The Care Certificate
In 2013 it was estimated that the number of adult social care jobs in England was 1.52 million. That was an increase of 15% since 2009. Following this trajectory the number of adult social care jobs is projected to grow to around 2.2 million by 2025. People are living longer, but at the same time we are not curing many of the problems associated with old age, such as arthritis, heart disease and dementia. A drive towards person-centred support is also increasing the numbers of staff employed in other sectors, such as mental health and learning disabilities. The Care Certificate is a gateway into social care as a career.
