This qualification will be ideal for you if you’re working within health or social care but may also be useful if you’re working in education or a housing support role.
You can also take this qualification to support your progress into further learning within the Health and Social Care sector.
Students wishing to undertake the certificate should be aged 18 or over. You will need to have at least a Level 1 qualification in literacy as you will be expected to write answers for assessment purposes.
