Care Specific

Welcome to our listing of the ‘Care Specific’ qualifications that we provide from Level 2 up to Level 5. These include knowledge-based only qualifications as well as qualifications where performance will also need to be demonstrated through being observed in your workplace in your everyday working practices. There are lots of different units available and you will be able to select ones relevant to your role as well as the ability to expand your knowledge and skills, including specialist areas.

A range of these qualifications can be funded by Skills for Care as part of the Workforce Development Fund (WDF) where available. The Workforce Development Fund (WDF) is funding from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). It supports the provision of high-quality care and the continuing professional development (CPD) of staff across the adult social care sector by providing a contribution towards the costs of vocational learning. The fund allows you to claim back money towards the costs of workers completing a broad range of adult social care qualifications, learning programmes and digital learning modules.

It’s important to note that organisations accessing funding must meet the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) requirements for WDF and further details on this can be accessed on the Skills for Care Website here.

We are an approved registered centre with ‘I Can Qualify‘ and ‘Training Qualifications UK (TQUK)‘. All course materials are developed to meet the specific outcomes that make up the full qualification. Each person will be assigned an assessor, who will work with you to meet your own unique learning style and you will be fully supported throughout.
