Care Home Jobs - The skills and experience you need
Not all care homes require formal qualifications or experience for entry level positions, however both are preferential when applying for care home jobs. A BTEC or A Level in Health and Social Care or Sociology may be useful, as well as other additional courses like First Aid or Childcare. You will need qualifications to become a Nurse or Healthcare Assistant however, and these can be obtained through an apprenticeship or degree.
