What will I learn?
Our popular distance learning courses allow you to study for a recognised qualification that is of value to your work and personal development and is a great route to take if you are looking to further develop existing skills (provided you are resident in England). The courses are Level 2 qualifications, accredited by NCFE Cache, an acknowledged leader in the field of distance learning.
This qualification aims to give learners knowledge and understanding to work with individuals with learning disabilities or difficulties. They will explore the principles of safeguarding and positive risk-taking and gain awareness of the autistic spectrum.
Learners will cover the following units
* Understand the context of supporting individuals with learning disabilities
* Principles of safeguarding and protection in health and social care
* Introduction to personalisation in social care
* Principles of positive risk-taking for individuals with disabilities
* Introductory awareness of autistic spectrum conditions
* Principles of supporting individuals with a learning disability to access healthcare
Government funding means that we are able to offer this course free of charge to eligible delegates. Learners will need to complete all units within 6 weeks and in the event of non-completion, a £100 fee to cover registration, administration fees and learning materials will be charged.
Where will it lead me?
The objectives of this qualification are to prepare learners for employment and to support a role in the workplace where the individual may work or interact with people with learning disabilities. This is primarily for those within healthcare and social care but may also be useful to those working in education or housing support roles.
Once you have completed your distance-learning course you will receive a certificate of completion. You will also have the option of enrolling onto another course if you wish to continue learning new skills.
There are no specific recommended prior learning requirements for this qualification. However, learners may find it helpful if they’ve already achieved a Level 1 qualification
