This programme is ideal for a wide range of learners. It has particular relevance to the professional development of those who are entering the field of health, social care, early years care or childcare in the public, private or voluntary sectors for the first time. The qualification is applicable to a range of adult, early years and young people’s settings and roles, and will be ideal for support workers, domiciliary and residential care workers, health care assistants, early years or childcare workers, and unpaid and voluntary carers.
It is designed to provide learners with a sound knowledge and understanding of the range of service provision and the requirements of a variety of roles within health and social care (adults and children and young people), early years care and childcare. The qualification also enables learners to develop their awareness of topics surrounding the principles and values that underpin work in this sector, including guidance and standards, the importance of confidentiality and ‘person-centred’ and ‘child-centred’ practice.
The programme has been mapped against the Health and Social Care National Occupational Standards and learners who successfully achieve the qualification will increase their professional confidence, enabling them to be competent in their work role.
Tribal’s learning materials comprise two mandatory units and two optional units.
To achieve the qualification, learners are required to achieve 10 credits: 6 credits from completing the mandatory units and a minimum of 4 credits from the optional units. Each unit contains activities and assessments designed to cover the specific learning outcomes.
Tribal’s materials comprise activity workbooks, which have been produced to suit a wide range of delivery methods. Learners will be provided with all necessary workbooks to complete the programme and will be required to work through a series of tasks and activities designed to reinforce the learning process and test their knowledge. The learning materials include an assessment, which allows learners to complete a portfolio of evidence and demonstrates achievement of all learning outcomes associated with each unit. However, because assessment requirements vary across different awarding organisations, centres are advised to check the assessment guidance for their preferred awarding organisation.
