Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern England and
Help the Aged in England.
Age UK Training specialises in providing tailored training for the health and social care sector.
Our health and social care training programmes and short courses offer progression routes through to national qualifications. Participants in our training programmes can gain nationally recognised qualifications (Diplomas) at level 2, level 3 and level 4, and functional skills awards at level 1 and level 2.
Age UK Training’s health and social care training includes care induction training programmes for all workers in the sector: the domiciliary care workers induction programme for workers entering domiciliary care settings, and residential care workers induction programme for workers entering residential care settings.
We also enable participants to gain health and social care skills and qualifications through our range of short courses for all care workers, which we can deliver as in-house training in the workplace, at open venues across the UK, at selected residential venues in England, or at a flexible training venue convenient to the participants.
Our health and social care training includes apprenticeships and vocational skills training for the sector, which we deliver from our training centres in England. Many of our programmes have government funding available for eligible participants.
Participants can gain national vocational Diplomas in health and social care through apprenticeships, which we deliver from our training centres.
We also enable participants to gain health and social care skills and qualifications through Learndirect.

Dowload information on our sensory loss workshop:
A download is a document (like a research report, a leaflet, or an application form) that can be transferred from our website to your computer. You can download a file, view it on your screen, print it, or save it to your computer.
PDF stands for ‘portable document format’.
Most downloads on this website are PDFs. We use this format to ensure that the document looks the same on everyone’s computer (website pages, by contrast, appear differently depending on how people have set their computer up).
Computers use a program called Adobe Acrobat Reader to download PDFs. If you try clicking on a link to download a PDF and it doesn’t work, you will need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader onto your computer.
The process is quite straightforward and is free.
PDFs cannot be changed. If you need to be able to type into a downloaded document (for example, if we are offering a letter template that you need to put your name on) we will provide it as a Microsoft Word document rather than a PDF. You can then download it, type into it and save it to your computer.
Downloads will open on your computer in a new browser window.
Inside this window (below all your web browser menus), there will be a toolbar with options for you to print or save the document.
Close the browser window to return to the Age UK website.
We have made every effort to make our PDFs accessible to screen readers. Here is an overview of your accessibility options available in Acrobat Reader. Please ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of Acrobat Reader from the Adobe Reader website to ensure that they are included in your version of the programme.
You can use Adobe Reader to read a PDF out loud with the following shortcut keys:
You can also convert a PDF into a web page by following these steps:
You can convert a PDF document into a text file for use with other software and hardware such as Braille printers by opening the PDF and choosing ‘Save as text’ from the File menu.
