Methods of Assessment
We encourage lecturers to use a range of assessment types that will engage learners and
give them an opportunity to both demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of a topic, and to evaluate how they might apply that knowledge in a given context. This should be part of the
assessment strategy and can include:
- A research activity resulting in the compilation of a report
- An academic paper or article for publication
- The compilation of a case study
- A critical review and evaluation of a chosen company’s policies, procedures and systems
- A set project completed for an employer (also known as an ‘employer-engagement’ activity)
- The production of a portfolio of evidence relating to a particular unit
Who is this course for?
- Support worker or supervisor
- Senior Care worker or supervisor
- Assistant or Deputy Manager
- Nursing staff
- Care Manager/Social Worker

For learners who have recently been in education or training the entry profile is likely to include one of the following:
- A GCE Advanced level profile with achievement in 2 or more subjects supported by or more GCSEs at grades C and above

- An Access to Higher Education Certificate delivered by an approved further

Learners may also have relevant work experience.
Mature learners may present a more varied profile of achievement that is likely to include relevant work experience (paid and/or unpaid) with levels of responsibility, participation and/or achievement of relevant professional qualifications. This may be used for recognition of prior learning (RPL).
Learners must also have an appropriate standard of English to enable them to access relevant resources and complete the unit assignments. For those whose English is not their first language we recommend the following standards of proficiency in English language skills or an approved equivalent for this qualification:
