Course Aims

Further to completion of the Care Certificate course, this course is designed to support health and social care workers, who are new to supporting individuals with a learning disability, with an introduction and understanding of Learning Disability and their responsibilities relating to this.

The course begins by defining Learning Disability. It then sets out how to support individuals with a learning disability by relating the theory of the relevant care certificate standards to working practice. For example, ‘equality and diversity’ defines hate crime and mate crime, ‘fluids and nutrition’ looks at the effects of associated syndromes on eating and drinking and ‘Awareness of Mental Health, Dementia and Learning Disabilities’ examines Health Action Plans which are specific to the individual and provide guidance on how they can remain healthy.

In module 2, the final stage of the course, we look at scenarios and strategies that will strengthen the knowledge through examples of experience. The scenarios support each standard relevant to caring for individuals with a learning disability.

Guided Learning Hours: up to 30 minutes, dependent on learner’s skills and abilities.
