You could take a course at college, for example:
- Level 2 Diploma in Work Preparation for Health and Social Care
- Level 2 GCSE in Health and Social Care
- Level 2 Certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce
- Level 2 Certificate or Diploma in Youth Work Practice
Although taking a social care qualification is not essential for finding work, most courses include work placements, so this could be a very good way for you to get experience.
Entry requirements for these courses vary.
