The Lead Practitioner in Adult Care will guide and inspire you to make positive differences to someone’s life when you are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional, psychological or intellectual challenges.
You will have achieved a level of self-development to be recognised as a Lead Practitioner within the care team, contributing to, promoting and sustaining a values-based culture at an operational level. A Lead Practitioner has a greater depth of knowledge and expertise of particular conditions being experienced by the user of services. You will have specialist skills and knowledge in your area of responsibilities which will allow you to lead in areas such as care needs assessment, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and enablement, telecare and assistive technology. You will be a coach and mentor to others and will have a role in assessing performance and quality of care delivery.
Lead Practitioners in Adult Care may work in residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres, a person’s own home or some clinical healthcare settings. As well as covering Lead Practitioners in Adult Care this standard also covers Lead Personal Assistants who can work at this senior level, but they may only work directly for one individual who needs support and/or care services, usually within their own home.
This Apprenticeship is delivered on a one to one basis in your workplace by your own dedicated expert Health and Social Care tutor.
They will meet with you every month (face to face or virtually) to provide teaching and training to help you develop new knowledge and skills and guide you through the programme.
They will then assess your competence by observing you applying the new skills at work and helping you develop a portfolio of evidence to prove you have met the requirements of the Apprenticeship.
