Course Overview

Is there anything more fulfilling in life than taking care of the needs of others? Careers in health and social care offer some concrete benefits, from high job satisfaction, to a varied working life, and fantastic progression routes. If all of this interests you, then our NCFE CACHE Level 2 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care will teach you all of the essential skills you’ll require. Once you’ve gained this NCFE CACHE accredited qualification, you’ll be able to apply for jobs as a care worker in adult residential settings, a healthcare assistant in primary and acute health environments, a community-based support worker, or many other rewarding positions. Alternatively, you’ll be able to progress to level three qualifications, such as our NCFE CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Adult Care, which will enable you to pursue positions with higher pay and more responsibility.

On this course, you’ll learn about the stages of human growth and development, safeguarding and protection, equality, diversity, and rights, anatomy and physiology, along with many other topics which will enable you to become a knowledgeable and competent caregiver. You’ll study in your own time and at your own pace, so it’s super simple to fit your learning around work and family life.
