Caring for People with Learning Disabilities

About the Level 4 Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Certificate

Learning difficulties come in many forms. Some people who are affected by learning difficulties only experience mild impairments, whereas others require constant support. This Level 4 home learning qualification aims to educate individuals about the best ways to help and understand people with a range of different learning difficulties.

The online course begins by introducing the common causes behind learning impairments and analysing the social impact of these difficulties. The home learning qualification also delves into the history of care and explains the current structure of car provision in the UK. Altogether there are six engaging modules for participants to complete.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for individuals who want to work with people who have learning difficulties. This home leaning programme is also suitable for those already working with people with learning difficulties, those living with people with learning difficulties, or anyone with a general interest in the topic.

As with all of our distance learning courses, you do not need any prior experience or qualifications to enrol. All we ask is that you are willing to learn and have access to our online portal. For this particular course we also recommend you have an interest in caring for vulnerable individuals.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, you will possess an accredited Level 4 qualification. If you enjoyed the studying element, your certificate could help you to enrol on a number of higher level courses. You may even choose to go on to university.

If you are keen to secure a job, your qualification can help you directly into employment. The care sector is calling out for knowledgeable and experienced care workers, and it won’t be long before you find a position suited to you. Jobs related to this qualification include:

  • SEN Teaching assistant
  • Support worker
  • Youth worker

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

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.
