With experience you could look after clients in their homes. You could work in a care home or a day centre.
If you have a Level 3 qualification, you could be a supervisor or team leader in a nursery or care home. You may decide to work with a particular client group such as young or adult offenders, young people, disabled people or people with substance misuse problems.
