Dementia Awareness

About the Level 2 Dementia Awareness Certificate

Have you ever wondered what it is like for someone to have dementia? Have you or has someone you know been personally affected by the illness? Do you want to work with dementia patients? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this could be the course for you. Gain an award with learndirect and join the fight against this life altering disease.

This home learning qualification is split between seven engaging modules. Each unit covers an important aspect of dementia which learners need to be aware of. Students will study online in their own time discovering everything from ethical and legal guidelines to effective communication. This home learning course will also investigate the different types of dementia.

Who should study this course?

This home study course is aimed at individuals who want to work with dementia patients. If you already have a career, this course may help you develop your skills. Studying dementia courses online can also be useful for people who have friends or relatives who are affected by the disease.

As with all of our courses here at learndirect, you needn’t gain any prior experience or qualifications before you apply. All we ask is that you are passionate about fighting dementia, and that you are able to access the internet to use our online platform.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home study course you will have a fundamental understanding of dementia and the effects it has on people and their families. This knowledge will help you to care for people you know with dementia, or help you to develop your career in the care sector.

If you enjoyed studying with us, you may choose to embark on another distance learning dementia care course. Dementia training could even lead you towards a university education. Careers in dementia care include but are not limited to:

  • Dementia adviser
  • Support worker
  • Care assistant

Level 2 Dementia Awareness Certificate of Achievement

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect 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 2 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 learndirect 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
