This qualification aims to give you the opportunity to investigate a work role in the health sector and provide the underpinning knowledge needed to work effectively.
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.
Unit 1 – Understand the role of the healthcare worker
Unit 2 – Communication skills for working in the health sector
Unit 3 – Personal development in the health sector
Unit 4 – Health, safety and security in the health sector
Unit 5 – Understand quality standards in the health sector
Unit 6 – Equality and diversity in the health sector
This is an online course and you will be supported by a qualified assessor who will mark your work and give you feedback.
You will be assessed through a portfolio of work that you will build as you progress through the units. There is no exam.
On completion of this online course, you could go on to study further qualifications or roles in the workplace.
