General Information

Care planning is about addressing an individual’s full range of needs whilst accounting for their circumstances and preferences. It helps individuals to be involved in decisions about their care and to achieve the outcomes they want.

This qualification will help learners to understand their role in supporting the preferences and needs of individuals in relation to their care or support, the development and implementation of care plans and contributing to the review of these by observing, monitoring and reporting on the care activities they are responsible for.

Distance learning is a great way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher or an assessor. Students have the flexibility to study at home or at work, fitting in their course around other life and work commitments.

Who is this course for?

This qualification is designed for learners looking to start work in, or already working in health and social care, who would like an understanding of care planning. This qualification aims to develop learners’ knowledge and understanding of the principles and processes of person-centred thinking, planning and review, as well as how to work with individuals to carry out activities specified in their care or support plan, including person-centred assessment, planning, implementation and review.
