Adult Care Diploma Level 2
This is an occupational qualification for those who work in Adult Care Worker roles in England.
Adult Care Workers are the frontline staff who help adults with care and support needs to achieve their personal goals and live as independently and safely as possible, enabling them to have control and choice in their lives which is at the heart of person-centred care. Adult Care Workers may work in residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres, a person’s own home or some clinical healthcare settings.
All mandatory units will be delivered via pre-recorded lessons provided by an industry expert. Once a month the College will deliver a community of practice tutorial which all students will be expected to attend. A qualified Trainer Facilitator/ Assessor will support this development via one-to-one tutorials and observations in practice, as prearranged with you and your employer.
