Care Assistants, or Care Workers, are responsible for helping people in need in their day to day lives. As a Care Assistant, you’ll generally be working with less able, seriously ill, or elderly people who need support with things many of us take for granted. It can be a very demanding job, but also highly rewarding, as you’re having a positive impact on people’s lives every day. The following skills will be important if you’re considering a career in care;

 

  • Good written and verbal communication
  • Empathy and understanding
  • Patience
  • Organisation
  • Good numeracy
  • Willingness to work a variety of different hours
  • Able to stay calm in demanding situations

In terms of qualifications, while there are often no official requirements from employers, it can certainly help to have the following:

 

  • Care Certificate
  • GCSEs in English and Maths
  • CRB check

Learning more about the profession and gaining additional qualifications through an apprenticeship scheme may also be possible.
