Health Careers LIVE Adult Social Work

Please note: all Learn Live broadcasts both LIVE and On Demand are accessible to all parents and guardians at home.

Health Careers LIVE are live streamed events that broadcast to thousands across the UK wanting to find out more about the different job roles within the NHS.

This broadcast featured Leah and Josie who talked to us about their careers in Adult Social Work and what opportunities there are as a carer.

Working in Adult Social Care or integrated teams alongside peers and key professionals every day, we have a variety of roles including social care assistants, social care development coordinators, social workers, occupational therapists, as well as finance and administrative staff. All of these roles can give you a greater insight into the work of adult social care in the statutory sector.

The live chat is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the panel.
