Safeguarding adults and upholding the dignity of those accessing health and social care services are key principles in the sector. The purpose of this qualification is to give learners currently working or intending to work in adult health or social care an understanding of dignity and safeguarding and their relevance in health and social care, and how you can work to uphold these key principles. Learners will investigate the principles and how they are applied in everyday work contexts.
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 the individual may work or interact with vulnerable adults.
You will need:
• To be 16 years of age or above
• It may also be useful to have already achieved a Level 1 qualification in health and social care.
• To complete a satisfactory initial assessment in literacy skills.
You will study the following 4 mandatory units:
• Understand safeguarding in adult health and social care
• Principles of dignity in adult health and social care practice
• Understand duty of care in adult health and social care
• Understand dilemmas and public concerns in adult health and social care
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 Understanding Dignity and Safeguarding in Adult Health and Social Care, from NCFE.
