This qualification provides an ideal taster for those who may be new to the sector or new to the world of work. It is accessible to learners who may want to understand more about working in health and social care.
The course covers the areas of communication, equality, diversity and inclusion, personal development, role of the social care worker, handling information, health and safety, safeguarding, duty of care and person-centred approaches.
You can complete this course at your own pace in a flexible way. You will have 8-10 weeks to complete all of the assessments.
Once enrolled you will be provided with access to our online platform. This will provide you with an online information booklet for you to read through. You then will need to submit answers to a range of assessment questions on the online platform.
