What jobs can you get with a QQI level 5 Healthcare?

You will be qualified to work as a healthcare assistant, carer, and care worker in an HSE-registered healthcare setting after completing the QQI Level 5 Healthcare major award. The duties of a Health Care Assistant may vary according to the setting. For example, as a Healthcare Assistant in a hospital, you may be required to conduct baseline observations under the Nurse’s supervision. You will also support the nurse in delivering quality care, whilst adhering to the hospital’s policies and procedures.

Having completed the major award gives the individual the opportunity and flexibility to find work in an HSE setting. However, if desired the individual may also work in a different setting where the nature of the role may vary. Some other settings include private nursing homes, a residential or an outreach setting. A care assistant may also travel to different clients’ homes. There has been an increase in the demand for healthcare providers to support older people who wish to continue living at home. More than 25,000 individuals are cared for in over 460 nursing homes in Ireland, according to Nursing Homes Ireland.

In residential settings, Healthcare assistants can support clients who require full-time or shared care. Numerous responsibilities such as personal care, and supporting people with living skills such as cooking, cleaning, family visits, etc. may occur. Additionally, if you choose employment in outreach or day activities, you may be working with clients to assist them in integrating into communities. The role may also be known as a Support Worker or Social Care Worker in some circumstances. However, it is important to note that further education may be required for some of these roles, depending on the job post requirements.  The option to work in a variety of settings allows for career flexibility and the opportunity to try different environments. You can visit the HSE Careers Hub to view open vacancies in the HSE setting.
