Summary

Unlike other cleaning courses, this qualification aims to provide learners with the skills and knowledge needed to gain employment in the cleaning and support services sector.

In this course they will develop their understanding of the principles of decontamination, and improve their practical skills in cleaning and waste management. Learners will also discover how to choose the correct methods and equipment for a range of tasks.

This course will expand on any previous knowledge from other cleaning courses learners may have and look in depth at health and safety as well as infection control, and regulations related to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences (RIDDOR), and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

Please note: To complete this course, you will need to be observed by a witness completing specific cleaning skills as part of Unit 6. You will either need to be in a workplace where a manager or supervisor could be your witness, or if you are not currently in employment, you will need to have access to an appropriate witness who can observe you completing cleaning skills.

In this unit your learners will identify different types of waste and discover the procedures for handling and transferring hazardous and non-hazardous waste.

This unit also covers workplace cleaning schedules, procedures learners should follow if they have concerns over standards of hygiene in addition to the principles of decontamination processes and effective waste management.

Unit 6: Cleaning of interiors and washrooms

This unit will ensure learners are able to prepare for cleaning of interiors and washrooms. Learners will discover the importance of cleaning procedures, using the correct methods and cleaning to prescribed standards. This unit requires a line manager or supervisor to observe the learner whilst demonstrating particular tasks in their role before completing a witness observation form. The witness observation form will act as evidence to prove the learner is capable of certain skills.
