Course Description

The Distance Learning Health and Social Care Level 3 course would be beneficial if you are planning on becoming a social worker, health visitor, carer, nurse or paramedic. This course is one of our most popular and is ideal for anyone wanting to work in the health and social care sector. It is also excellent CPD material for those already working in a related field.

This home study course follows a logical and familiar structure; covering issues applicable to a Health and Social Care setting. You are then given an insight into many common health issues that affect most of us throughout our lives. These include common diseases and illnesses like diabetes and epilepsy. Subsequent units help you understand the effects that drugs and alcohol has on the body and their impact on society. This course will also provide you with the knowledge of how to support individuals with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

As part of this course, you will have the opportunity to complete the Care Certificate. This consists of 15 standards and is intended for Healthcare Support Workers (HCSW) and Adult Social Care Workers (ASCW), including Care Support Workers, Health Care Assistants, Assistant Practitioners, and those providing support to clinical roles who have direct contact with patients. The Care Certificate is a key component of the overall induction that employers must provide legally in order to meet the essential standards set out by the Care Quality Commission.
