Overview

The Challenging Behaviour (Elderly) course will help staff to improve the lives of people who display challenging behaviour as it is concerned with how staff can support service users to replace the behaviours with positive actions.

This course will help staff to improve the lives of people who display challenging behaviour as it is concerned with how staff can support service users to replace the behaviours with positive actions. The Challenging Behaviour (Elderly) course supports care workers by identifying what they can and cannot do, gives advice as to how they can remain safe, keep service users safe and act within organisational, local and national procedures.

Achievement

Description

This course will appeal to staff from a variety of social care settings. Staff will be supporting adults who display behaviours considered to challenge, in settings ranging from residential care, respite care, day services, educational provision and the voluntary sector.

The programme is at QLS Level 2, the equivalent of GCSE or ‘O’ Level. This programme is divided into 10 modules, each covering a different aspect of the challenging behaviour in the elderly.

There is an activities booklet containing the activities a learner will need to successfully pass the course. These are marked by a tutor, who will give the student written feedback on assessments along with support and guidance.
Each module of the Challenging Behaviour (Elderly) programme begins with an introduction and states the learning outcomes for the module.

Learning outcomes are statements explaining what the student will understand or be able to do by the time they have finished studying each module. The assessment questions are closely linked to the learning outcomes.

Students can check whether they have met each learning outcome by successfully completing the associated assessment questions.

Assessment

The Certificate of Achievement from Quality Licence Scheme is gained by successfully completing a series of assignments. Your personal tutor will review, mark and provide you with feedback on your work.

Certification

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that NCC Home Learning has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at QLS Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group’s knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables them to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
