my certificates have come through for my nvq level 3 in health and social care, but apart from becoming a senior carer in a care home what else could i consider? im currently a care assistant in a home for adults with disabilities and dont want to work with the elderly, just to narrow choices down a bit

Congratulations :)

Is there a manager at work you could sit down and have a chat with about your future career? They would obviously have these qualifications as well and would know what else you could perhaps look at.

my manager never has time to sit down with us and have these chats. one of our nurses would but hes on nightshifts so i wont get to see him. i might ask my nvq assessor as im now doing a modern apprenticeship with her

If you work with LD, then you're effectively a Support Worker. NVQ3 should give you the opportunity to develop further and take up a team leader role after training and a bit of time in a Senior Support role.

weve all said we are support workers but our job description says we are care assistants. in a way im hoping to get out of working in a care home

my nvq is for working with adults, which it says on my certificate so it wouldnt apply to a job working with children

The way forward with care now is supporting people in smaller houses. Supported living or inclusion. Ive been doing this for a couple of years now and find it much better work and pay wise. I think a lot is down to the company you are working for though. If you progress onto NVQ4 or registered managers award that would open up more doors. If you are wanting to work with children they will take this into account as you can transfer skills or learning. You should be able to transfer the skills you have now into any support related work.

An HCA (Health Care Assistant) in a medical centre. I am not sure how good the money is generally - but if you get a good practice it is a great job.
