This qualification is aimed at anyone wishing to work in adult social care. It doesn’t confirm competence but relates to the knowledge units. The qualification aims to introduce the following subjects; communication; equality, diversity and inclusion; personal development; health and safety; safeguarding; duty of care and the person centred approach.
This course is designed for adult learners studying part time as a hobby or to support a change in their career.
The course will prepare learners for further training and support a role in the workplace where learners need knowledge on adult social care.
You will need:
• To complete a satisfactory initial assessment in literacy skills.
• It may also be useful to have already achieved a Level 1 qualification prior to this qualification.
You will study nine mandatory units, all of which must be passed to achieve the qualification.
Each learner must create a portfolio of evidence which demonstrates achievement of all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria associated with each unit. You will be allocated an assessor who will support you through the learning process and assess your work, providing advice and guidance. You would be expected to complete the programme in 16 weeks.
On completion of this course you will receive a Level 2 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care, from NCFE.
