Any
Questions?

Now lets plan your next steps
What % of Social Care Workers are aged 55+ in the North East?
19% -Discussion point -That means 19,600 workers are due to retire from the sector in the next ten years. All these jobs have to be replaced especially as we have an ageing population who will need more care.
Are more care workers in the North East employed in the public or private sector?
What is the minimum qualification you would be required to undertake as a Care Worker?
How can you demonstrate that you have the skills and qualities needed for care on a CV?
What evidence is there that care is a sector that is expected to remain in demand
Private (47%) with 34% employed by public sector/local authority. 17% voluntary sector and remainder employed by other e.g. self employment
A Care Worker will be expected to undertake a Level 2 Health and Social Care Diploma as a minimum. Discussion Point – Level 3 Health and Social Care Diploma is required if you supervise others
Discuss - transferable skills and experience, formal and informal and how this can be applied to Care
We have an ageing population, as people get older they require more care. This also means that more people will be coming to retirement age in the sector so will need replaced.
