Job satisfaction is the ultimate goal for everyone and there aren’t any jobs that are more satisfying than making a real difference in the lives of people. And this is exactly what support workers do. They provide not only support but also care and assistance, along with improving the quality of life. However, this also requires support workers to have a diverse skill set as every person is different and everyone has different types of problems and needs.

Additionally, being a Support Worker & Care Assistant Certificate can be a difficult career as it requires a high level of patience, empathy and emotional intelligence. It may require working with people who have challenging behaviour, and physical or mental difficulties and it can be emotionally demanding. Moreover, it requires working in shifts, including evenings, weekends and holidays.

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.

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.

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.
