LEVEL 2 AND LEVEL 3 DIPLOMA IN CARE QUALIFICATIONS


Our Pearson accredited Consultus Care Training Centre is approved by Pearson to train carers for the nationally recognised Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma in care qualifications.


The cost of our diploma courses for Consultus carers is heavily subsidised, we offer a flexible payment option that is spread over five months and funding may be available for carers in managed care bookings.


Course Content


At Consultus, we offer a rolling programme which gives you more flexibility with your training. You can start the qualification when you are ready, subject to assessor availability.


These qualifications usually take between six to twelve months to complete. You will need to complete nine mandatory units for the Level 2 qualification and 13 mandatory units for the Level 3 qualification plus additional optional units.

These units will cover the necessary skills to perform the role of a health and social care worker to a high standard.


Theory work will be completed using our online e-portfolio system. This means a computer or tablet will be required for the duration of your training course. Full training on these distance learning resources will be provided during your remote diploma induction session.


Your allocated assessor will support individuals during their studies, such as those who may not have studied since leaving school, for whom English isn’t a first language or those who lack confidence.


Successful completion of this training course will be assessed through evidence of your practical competency, gathered by our experienced assessors. Your assessor will observe you caring for your clients in their own homes on at least two occasions. The client must be located within a commutable distance from Consultus Head Office (Tonbridge).


For Consultus Carers, this will be an observation during a typical live-in care booking. For non-Consultus carers, your observation will be done at either your client’s home or at a care home.


Level 2


Level 2 is the entry level for carers who have not studied this subject before or who are new to the role. This qualification aims to consolidate knowledge and encourage individuals to excel in their role through learning and development.


Level 3


The Level 3 is the equivalent of an AS-level qualification and is best suited for those who already work in the Social Care Sector and have experience working without supervision. This programme sets the standard for those working in Health and Social Care and will provide you with the fundamental skills necessary to provide the highest standard of care.


Learners enrolling onto the Level 3 qualification must have evidence of relevant adult learning or have previously completed the Level 2 Diploma. They must be an experienced carer who works in a supervisory or lead role and has clients with a moderate to high level of dependency.

"We are thrilled to offer carers the opportunity to undertake online training! It is such a flexible and user-friendly way to learn, particularly for live-in carers who are based all over the world. I have found the online system very easy to navigate, the course content is excellent and I particularly like that you can read or listen to the course information as you work your way through the course."
