LEVEL 3 CERTIFICATE IN PREPARING TO WORK IN ADULT SOCIAL CARE

Level Three

As the need for adult social care continues to rise, it’s important that care workers have up-to-date support and guidance that allows them to provide person-centred care for the people they work with. If you’re looking for a career change and want to understand more about health and social care, or if you’ve just started working in the sector and are looking for an introductory qualification, this fully online course is ideal. It’s a knowledge-only course, so there aren’t any competence or practical elements. You will learn all about important issues in care such as safeguarding, equality and diversity, and health and safety. The course also covers how to plan and organise work, how to solve problems and make decisions, and types of communication and information systems you might have to work with. You will also gain information about motivating and improving performance, career development, training and coaching, and how to deal with conflict and stress in the workplace.
