What’s it all about?

This qualification is suitable for those aged 19 and above. This qualification is designed for those looking to start work in, or already working in health and social care, who would like an understanding of caring for children and young people.

Those wishing to undertake the certificate should be aged 19 or over. You will need to have at least a Level 1 qualification in literacy and it would be helpful if you have a Level 1 qualification in healthcare or social care as you will be expected to write answers for assessment purposes.

The purpose of this qualification is to increase learners’ awareness and understanding of falls and their prevention which will allow them to progress into, or within, employment in healthcare or social care settings.

The objective of the qualification is to allow learner’s to gain knowledge and understanding of:

the impact and consequences of a fall
risks and hazards which contribute to falls
reducing the risk of falls.

You will be allocated your own study pack and have a personal tutor who you can contact throughout your studies. You will be required to work through a series of tasks and activities designed to reinforce the learning process and demonstrate your knowledge. This will mainly consist of a written assessment for each unit, which will be assessed by the tutor as well as two simple observation exercises. (This course is also available on-line)
