NVQ Health and Social Care - Distance Learning
NVQs in Health and Social Care have been replaced by the NEW QCF Diplomas in Health and Social Care.
Please visit our QCF Diplomas in Health and Social Care page for detailed informtaion.
From 1st January 2011 all vocational and work related qualifications changed. The essential tool in this reform of vocational qualifications is Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF).
W&P's NVQ Health and Social Care distance learning option gives the learner more choice and flexibility. Distance Learning allows Staff who are unable to attend workshops, because of busy lifestyles, night duty or family commitments, the chance to still access the underpinning knowledge they require through our jargon free Distance Packs. NVQ Health and Social Care Awards allow the learner to improve their standards and further their skills in their working environment.
The Benefits for Employers
As an employer ask yourself the following questions...
How long do the carers take to complete their NVQ in Health and Social Care? Can they only go to workshops in 'term time'?
Carers using W&P Distance Packs can start any day of the year and work on them any day or night of the year.
Do you have to cover carer's shifts when carers go to NVQ workshops for their underpinning knowledge? If the answer is yes. What is the cost to you?
Carers using W&P's NVQ Health and Social Care Distance Packs for their underpinning knowledge complete them in their own time. Cost to you - nil.
Whilst these carers are attending workshops someone has to spend time and effort to re-do the rotas. What is the cost of this time consuming exercise to you?
Carers using W&P's Distance Packs can complete them in their own time. Cost to you - nil.
Do you pay to transport these staff to their workshops? (Many care homes do).
Carers using W&P's NVQ Health and Social Care Distance Packs do not require this service. Cost to you - nil.
How much support does the A1 Care Assessor give the candidate?
At W&P Care Training Centre we give strong Internal Verifier support. We have experienced Internal Verifiers who give excellent support and guidance to Assessors so they in turn are able to give candidates all the support they need. This ensures candidates who understand how they have gained their award, have improved their care practice and have achieved their level 2 award in 3 - 6 months.
