Find out how to support people with their hydration and provide a balanced diet.

Who is this Course for?

Our Fluids & Nutrition mini course is useful to anyone entering the health and social care workforce at an entry level, or even people with significant experience who have not yet been trained to Care Certificate standards. This course is aligned with the care certificate learning outcomes set by Skills for Care so it is useful for refresher training or for people who have partially completed their Care Certificate.

This course can also be taken by learners seeking employment in the care industry in the UK who wish to gain & demonstrate an understanding of the key principles of care. It is a robust introduction to the subject matter and will be recognised by healthcare employers across the country.

Course Content, Learning Outcomes & Assessment

Our Fluids & Nutrition course is an ideal induction course for people new to care or to supplement previous learning towards the Care Certificate. It can also be used for refresher training.

Our fluids and nutrition mini course teaches the importance of food safety and hygiene, and introduces the concepts of nutrition and hydration.

You’ll learn how to recognise the signs of malnutrition and dehydration as well as supporting individuals to maintain a balanced diet.
