Vocational courses are hands on, practical courses allowing you to gain skills and experience which are directly linked to a future career. Time management and meeting deadlines play an important role in success on a vocational course and during your studies you'll produce a portfolio of evidence (plans, reports, drawings, videos, placements) which is ideal for demonstrating your abilities in further studies and employment.
The QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) is a new way of recognising skills and qualifications. It does this by awarding credit for units (small steps of learning) and enables learners to gain qualifications at their own pace along flexible routes.
Health and Social Care QCF Levels 2, 3 AND 5 (Funding available for UK residents – also available through apprenticeship framework)
These qualifications are designed for people who work with individuals to support and assist them with their physical or emotional care, daily living needs or maintaining their independence.
The level 2 qualification is aimed at home care assistants, community support assistants, healthcare assistants and residential or day service assistants.
The level 3 qualification is aimed at individuals who often work without direct supervision or on their own, perhaps in a user's own home.
The level 5 qualification is aimed at people in supervisory or management roles.
Levels 3 and 4 include a pathway for adults and one for children and young people. The adults pathway is appropriate for senior care workers, healthcare workers, home care organizers and community support workers. The children and young people pathway is appropriate for residential child care workers and fosters carers as well as individuals in health, youth justice and educational settings.
