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
