Who is it for?
The purpose of this qualification is to increase learners’ awareness and understanding of falls and their prevention which will allow them to progress into, or within, employment in healthcare or social care settings.
The objective of the qualification is to allow learner’s to gain knowledge and understanding of:
• the impact and consequences of a fall
• risks and hazards which contribute to falls
• reducing the risk of falls.
The qualification also covers the importance of recording and reporting any incidence of falls to ensure that interventions can be put in place to reduce risk and reoccurrence of falls.
This qualification is aimed at anyone working in a healthcare or social care environment, particularly those that support, or have contact with, older people who have an increased propensity to falls.
This qualification is suitable for learners aged 16 and above.
What does the course involve?
The materials comprise a set of high-quality activity workbooks, which have been produced to suit a range of delivery methods. These materials have been officially endorsed by the relevant awarding organisation as meeting the requirements of the qualifications. Learners will be provided with all the necessary workbooks to complete the programme and will have the opportunity to work through a series of reflective tasks and activities designed to reinforce the learning process and test their knowledge.
The qualification is made up of four mandatory units:
• Unit 01 Falls in context
• Unit 02 Understand the risk factors and causes of falls
• Unit 03 Falls assessment and prevention
• Unit 04 Managing falls.

Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care

I really enjoyed my placement at The Column Nursery. The staff there were very friendly and approachable. This placement has allowed me to develop my skills with younger children, which I think will help me whilst working towards my future career. I definitely recommend working with The Column Nursery.

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health & Social Care
Previous school: The Priory School
I’m the regional district cadet of the year for St John Ambulance and what that means is that I have quite a lot of clinical experience, as well as a lot of skills that I’ve acquired through just talking to people. When my tutor found out about my volunteering, she encouraged me to enter the WorldSkills Show to show my transferrable skills and work on my personal development.
Health & Social Care BTEC (A Level Sociology and Psychology)
Previous school: St Dominic’s School
I have completed two placements at Shortwood Primary School as part of my studies. This has helped me to decide on my future aim of becoming a Primary School Teacher. I enjoy Health & Social Care as it helps me balance out my workload.
