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

Diabetes Diploma issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges, to view a sample of the college’s award, please click here.

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 4 Diabetes Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. 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 difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular 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.

"The Affiliation of Ethical & Professional Therapists is dedicated in assisting you as a  member, in the promotion and growth of your practice. Your profile will be entered onto our website and each month you will receive a free e-zine full of business tips and valuable information".
