This qualification is ideal for anyone hoping to work in the adult health and social care sector. People should enrol on this course if they wish to learn how to identify safeguarding issues, and uphold excellent standards of care provision for vulnerable adults.
In 2013, a total of 176,000 safeguarding alerts were reported to councils with Adult Social Services responsibilities. One third of these cases involved physical abuse and neglect, making this the most common cause of safeguarding alerts. This qualification will provide you with a thorough understanding of how you could help protect innocent and vulnerable people who might be suffering from abuse, harm or neglect within the adult health and social care industry and the importance of dignity and safeguarding, which could help reduce these shocking statistics. The course comprises four mandatory units: Unit 01: Understanding safeguarding in adult health and social care Unit 02: Principles of dignity in adult health and social care practices Unit 03: Understanding duty of care in adult health and social care Unit 04: Understanding dilemmas and public concerns in adult health and social care
To pass this qualification with Shrewsbury College, students are required to complete the four mandatory units. A formal assessment is completed at the end of each unit and submitted to us for marking.
