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

Certificate 2 is issued by Quality Licence Scheme: Level 4 Caring for People with Learning Disabilities Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme 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 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 Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme 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.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
