Training for the Future....

If you've got formal Health and Social Care training and qualifications, you're an asset to any employer operating in the care sector - whether it’s a day care centre or sheltered housing, a care home for the elderly or a domiciliary post in a private home. An NVQ in Health and Social Care lets you strengthen the skills you use to do your job, helps you fill in any training gaps you might have and gain valuable qualifications at the same time.
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are qualifications that demonstrate your ability to do your job. There are no formal examinations. The training is mainly on the job and NVQ assessment is directly related to your performance at work.

The NVQ in Health and Social Care is a nationally-recognised programme, designed by employers to meet the needs of today's social care environment. You can tailor-make your own NVQ, allowing you to focus on and develop the Health and Social Care skills that you use most often.

The "Work Profile" contained within the course will help you choose what to learn, depending on the skills you need to do your job more effectively.

And, if you feel that you need help understanding how your English skills could help with your qualification, then we have a course that will show you how these skills relate to the different areas of work in your NVQ.

  1. When was this posted Brian, and are you aware of the new QCF courses. They could prove interesting in regards to acting as new frameworks for social care training in the UK.
