This BTEC qualification provides evidence of competence in delivering care within a range of adult care services.  It is a work-based qualification and therefore you will need a supportive employer to allow assessment in the workplace.  It is usually completed over a 12-month period but course length may vary according to the setting and the nature of your job role.  You will be assessed by one of our highly-skilled and occupationally-competent members of staff.

Course Content

You will be allocated an assessor who visits the work setting every 4 to 6 weeks to support and guide you through your qualification. You will need to complete both mandatory units plus optional knowledge & competency units. The mandatory units include safeguarding and protection, personal development and
equality and inclusion.
