About the Level 4 Caring for Older People Certificate

Currently, the UK has an ageing population. This means we are going to need more qualified and skilled carers on hand to look after our elderly. This Level 4 distance learning course has been designed with this in mind. Students who study the qualification with Stonebridge College will gain a thorough understanding of how best to care for old people.

Over the duration of the course, students will study seven modules. These modules will cover everything from the physiology of aging to holistic care methods. The course will also examine relevant government policy and analyse how these regulations affect the elderly community. Altogether the material will take approximately 200 hours to complete.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at individuals who currently work with old people, or want to change careers and secure work in the care sector. The diploma may also be useful to individuals who have elderly relatives to care for.

As with all of our home learning courses here at Stonebridge College, you do not need any prior qualifications if you want to enrol. All you need is a access to our online portal; the motivation to engage in home study and the desire to help the elderly.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, you will be primed and ready to start caring for the elderly community. If you enjoyed studying, you may consider studying another distance learning course with us. You may even go on to study social care at university.

Alternatively, you could go straight into employment. There ae plenty of opportunities in social car and the skills you learn on your home study course will come in useful for the rest of your professional life. Care jobs include but are not limited to:

  • Social worker
  • Care home manager
  • Support worker

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
