Ethics and Values in Social Care

About the Level 4 Ethics and Values in Social Care Certificate

Strong ethics and values are essential to effective social work. In fact, in this profession they are probably the two most important factors to consider. Due to the nature of the situations that social carers encounter, these individuals need to have a comprehensive understanding of what is right and wrong and how best to approach tricky situations.

This course is spread across six engaging modules. These units cover topics ranging from values in practice and moral philosophy to self-determination, oppression and respect. Altogether this distance learning course should take approximately 150 – 200 hours to complete, however at Stonebridge College, we encourage our students to work at their own pace.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at students who are looking to work in the care sector. The course is also suitable for individuals who already hold positions in social care and are looking to develop their practice and advance their career.

As with all of our home learning courses here at Stonebridge, you do not need any previous accreditations in order to apply. All we ask is that you have an interest in social care, access to the internet and the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

By the end of this home learning qualification you will have a fundamental understanding of the morals and ethics involved in professional social care. You will be able to channel these new skills into your existing career, or use them to find a new job.

If you enjoyed studying towards this distance learning qualification, you may choose to study another course. You may ever choose to embark on our Access to HE Diploma in Social Work and study social work at university. Jobs in social care include but are not limited to:

  • Social worker
  • Youth worker
  • Child psychotherapist

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: Ethics and Values in Social Care Diploma

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 4 Ethics and Values in Social Care 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.
