Thanks to advances in medical technology, we are living in an era when more people with learning disabilities can now live functional lives.
As more of the learning disabled are at home rather than in hospital situations or institutions, it has become necessary for a wider base of the population to be educated in assisting to care for them.
In this course our tutors will guide you through the social dimensions of learning disabilities, while examining methods of teaching, caring for and managing people with learning difficulties.
The support needed to provide people with a better life from the first stage of disability until they gain some independence in daily activities, despite their disabled condition, can be expected to be in even greater demand in the future.
On completion of your course, you will receive these qualifications:
Qualification: Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Diploma
Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Diploma issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges, entitling you to use the letters SAC Dip after your name.
Qualification: Level 4 Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Award
At the end of this course successful learners will also receive a level 4 NCFE Award certificate of achievement. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and A Levels are at level 3).
This award has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements.
Accreditation by NCFE is a guarantee of quality. It means that this learning programme has been scrutinised and approved by an independent panel of experienced educational professionals and is quality audited biannually by NCFE.
