Who is this Course for?

Our Mental Health, Dementia & Learning Disability 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 Mental Health, Dementia & Learning Disability 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.

This mini course teaches learners how to support individuals with mental health conditions, learning disabilities or dementia.

You’ll learn how to respond inclusively to such individuals and avoid stigmatising or excluding them, both with the care provided and with the activities they can access.

The key concept of mental capacity is introduced and explained and consent is explored further.

At the end of the course there will be a short test for which the learner must achieve 80% to pass. You’ll get 10 attempts at each test so please use them carefully. The tests consist of mostly multiple choice questions and they are scored automatically which means you’re able to download your certificate instantly at the end of the course. You’re free to download your certificates as many times as you need to while you maintain your account with us.
