Using The Law In Social Care

Overview

About the Level 4 Using the Law in Social Care Certificate

A good knowledge of the law is necessary if you want to be a social worker. Ethics and guidelines are at the centre of social care practice. This distance learning course has been designed to educate students about the legislation involved in social work. What’s more is that it can be studied from the comfort of your own home.

The course is split over seven interesting and educational modules. Each of these units examines a different element of social care law. If you study with learndirect you will study everything from the Children’s Act and young offenders to mental health and community care. The course should take around 210 hours to complete but we recommend you talk all the time you need.

Who should study this course?

This home learning course is useful for aspiring or current social workers who want to improve or refresh their legal knowledge. It will also be beneficial for those working in other positions in the social care sector.

As with all of our home study courses at learndirect, we do not need you to have any prior qualifications before you enrol. All we ask is that you are motivated, have an interest in social work and have a way to access on our online platform.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how the law applies to social care in the UK. This knowledge will lead to better practice and therefore, better job opportunities. It may also help you in future studies.

There are plenty of jobs in the care sector available for people with a good legal knowledge. In fact, most care workers will be expected to have a basic understanding of the law. Jobs related to this course include but are not limited to:

  • Social worker
  • Youth worker
  • Local government worker
