Overview

By completing this course, you will be equipped with a greater understanding of how to prevent and control the spread of infection, both in the workplace and in the home. You will also gain knowledge of how to identify infections, as well as the different types of infection.

As all employers are now looking to recruit people who already hold a Level 2 Certificate in English and Mathematics (e.g. GCSE grade C/4 or above), a requirement for the course is that you have a minimum of Level 1 in English or be prepared to sit an English assessment to establish your current levels. Please discuss any queries regarding your Mathematics and English because all applications will be considered on an individual basis.

This online course is split into three manageable units:

  • Unit 1: Causes and spread of infection (eight questions)
  • Unit 2: The principles of infection prevention and control (18 questions)
  • Unit 3: Cleaning, decontamination and waste management (10 questions)

The course is designed to be completed in 12 weeks and all learning takes place on a distance learning platform. You will complete assessments and send them to your designated assessor for marking and feedback.

Assessment takes place in the form of a portfolio of work that you build as you progress through the units. There is no exam.

On completion of this qualification, you could progress to a Level 3 related qualification or complete another course at Level 2.

The staff that will be supporting you through this course have expertise in Health and Social Care and Education.
