Level 3 Standards – The Lead Adult Care Worker role is key in the delivery of care and support to individuals in a number of different settings/situations. Employment opportunities range from residential care homes and care-at-home services to supporting individuals to develop skills to enable them live their lives with increasing independence and to reach their full potential.

The Lead Adult Care role has increased responsibility at Level 3 and apprentices may develop into key worker or support worker roles, which means that they may have more autonomy and responsibility than an ‘adult care worker’.
