Are there any other requirements?

Practices must employ the apprentice HCA for a minimum of 30 hours per week.

The apprentice should ideally already have functional skills level 2 in Maths and English and must be able to produce certificate evidence of this prior to starting the apprenticeship.

If not already achieved, the apprentice must study for and pass these qualifications alongside the level 3 diploma, as they will be unable to complete the qualification without them.
