Summary

The Level 2 Diploma in Care is a competence-based qualification which has been developed with Skills for Care and in consultation with employers who provide adult care. It covers the knowledge and skills required to work in an adult care worker role in a range of settings, supporting individuals with different needs.

The qualification is aimed at adult care workers, support workers and key workers in a range of adult care or integrated care settings. It is suitable for those new to care or those who are working in care and wish to validate their skills.

The diploma is a flexible qualification to suit different settings in the care sector. There is a strong emphasis on practical skills, as well as the underpinning theories which support your working practices. All learners are expected to complete their qualification within 12 months.

Duration and structure

The qualification will take around 12 months to complete. You are required to complete your training within the workplace, where an assessor will visit you and support your progress through on-site assessment.

How will I learn?

Your course is fully delivered within your workplace by a competent assessor on a one-to-one basis. Visits are arranged to be flexible to suit the needs of the learner. You will build a portfolio of evidence; this will be achieved through a variety of methods, including assessor observations, discussions, study packs and testimonials.

Entry criteria

You will need to be employed in the care sector and working in excess of 16 hours per week. Ideally you will have undertaken a workplace induction or the Care Certificate, and it is desirable that you have at least 3 months' experience within your job role.
