About the Level 4 Diabetes Certificate

Diabetes is a lifelong condition which affects a person’s ability to produce insulin and control their own blood sugar. While some people are born with the condition, others develop it in later life. In either case, awareness of the condition and its causes can help people to control the disease, or even prevent it from occurring in the first place.

Students who embark on this distance learning course will become a part of a national effort to understand diabetes. They will study modules covering everything from detection and prevention, to clinical care and gestational diabetes. Students will also learn to empower those living with the condition and discover how society can provide better care services.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of diabetes. Whether the topic is relevant in your line of work, or you have personal connections to the disease, this diabetes course is the perfect way to get ahead.

As with many of our courses here at Stonebridge College, you do not need any prior qualifications or experience to enrol. As long as you are interested in diabetes care, diabetes prevention and the different types of diabetes, this home learning course is perfect for you.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this distance learning course students should have a fundamental understanding of diabetes as a disease. This knowledge will help individuals care for diabetic relatives and friends and allow them to spread awareness about the condition.

While this course may not lead directly to a fixed position, it is certainly relevant in a number of fields. People of all professions come face to face with diabetes every day. Examples of careers where knowledge of diabetes is beneficial include:

  • Support worker
  • Healthcare assistant
  • Nutritionist

For more information about this course, give us a call on this number: 0121 392 8288

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Diabetes Diploma

Certificate 2 is issued by Quality Licence Scheme: Level 4 Diabetes 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
