Health and social care training courses

We’ve drawn on our vast experience and suite of over 140 qualifications to ensure our training meets the needs of your business and your staff.

Health and Social Care Diploma – Level 2

This qualification is delivered entirely in the workplace, meaning your staff are assessed on the essential skills and knowledge they need to do their job well. On average it will take around six months to complete.

Health and Social Care packages

These packages feature a series of carefully selected modules designed to provide the skills, experience and understanding to deliver high standards of care and support. These courses are delivered online, meaning your employees can fit learning around work and home life.

Short courses

We offer a number of short online courses which provide specific training suitable for a variety of health and social care roles, such as autism awareness and communication skills.

We can also provide a range of business skills training to develop the skills of those working in the care sector that might not be providing personal care, such as managers, team leaders, maintenance staff or activity coordinators.
