Around 1.5 million people in the UK have a learning disability. Owing to the fact that they are likely to find it more difficult than others to describe their symptoms, a good knowledge of legislation and the health care system, as well as an understanding of signs and symptoms of various conditions, is essential for anyone working with individuals with learning disabilities.



Benefits:

• Achieve a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification

• Further your personal and professional development

• Learn at a time that suits you without having to attend college

• Improve your understanding of the term ‘learning disability’

• Understand the importance of safeguarding individuals from abuse and the importance of a person-centred approach to   risk-taking.



Course Content (Units):

1. Understand the context of supporting individuals with learning disabilities

2. Principles of safeguarding and protection in health and social care

3. Introduction to personalisation in social care

4. Principles of positive risk-taking for individuals with disabilities

5. Introductory awareness of autistic spectrum conditions

6. Principles of supporting individuals with a learning disability to access health care



This course is available in several learning styles:

• Flipbook – online PDF workbook

• Online assessment – work through workbook and submit answers online

• Paper based – complete workbooks and return to the college

There are no formal entry requirements but this course is ideal for anyone wishing to pursue a career in the Care Sector. This course is funded through the College’s Adult Education Budget.
