The QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2 is an internationally recognised qualification and the UK industry standard for those working in health and social care. Delegates who have undertaken this training will be recognised as having the fundamental skills and occupational competence necessary to work with adults and children across all social care settings, including in residential care homes, primary care services, domiciliary care, day services and assisting supported living.
Delegates will need to complete a minimum of 9 mandatory units and 9 optional knowledge and competence units coming to a total of at least 46 credits to earn the QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2. Each unit contains 2 credits.
The optional knowledge and competence units cover a variety of areas in health and social care, enabling delegates to tailor the course to their own specific career development needs. These areas of specialist professional development span from supporting individuals with physical or learning disabilities to improving infection control and cleanliness. The options available to delegates also include the option to attain a general qualification in health and social care, or to move along a specialist pathway in either Dementia or Learning Disabilities. Please feel free to contact us to further request an information pack on the optional pathways available.
This course is fully compliant with the Health and Social Care National Occupation Standards approved by Skills for Care & Development. This course is accredited by OFQUAL and will help you or your organisation to meet the conditions and standards required by the Care Quality Commission.
How does assessment take place?
The course assessment includes an evaluation of work-based performance, presentation of evidence, witness statements and peer testimony, and question and answer sessions. Delegates will need to put together a portfolio of evidence demonstrating that they can achieve the course objectives to the required standard.
To help with this, course delegates are appointed a vocationally trained QCF assessor who helps assemble the portfolio and guide the delegate throughout the diploma. Email and telephone support is also on hand for the duration of the QCF Level 2 Care programme and the resources available to delegates will be outlined as required.
What are the entry requirements?

How long will it take?
