Do I need qualifications?
You have learnt in the modules that dependent on the role you choose you don’t always need qualifications or previous work experience in the sector to get a job in health and social care.
What’s really important is having the right values, behaviours and attitudes to work effectively with people who need care and support.
Values are the beliefs and views that people hold about what is right or wrong. They apply to all aspects of life and influence how a person behaves in different situations. Here are some examples of the values and behaviours you might need to work in health and social care.
- Dignity and respect
- Learning and reflection – (thinking about what you do and why you do things in a certain way)
- Working together
- Commitment to quality care and support
