DO YOU NEED A DIPLOMA TO BECOME A CARE WORKER?

To work as a carer, it is not necessary for you to have any specific qualifications, therefore a diploma is not entirely essential. However, if you are completely new to the industry and have very little or no previous experience, then studying for diploma could be the perfect idea for you in order to gain more professional knowledge and skills as a care worker. The Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Health and Social Care are the core qualifications for care workers. The Level 2 and 3 Diplomas in Health and Social (adults) enables you to develop specialist knowledge and demonstrates a level of competence. The Diplomas are designed to ensure that carers can offer quality care and support, and are fit to practice.

When you take the course, they will provide you with practical training and a work based qualification. The Level 2 and 3 Diplomas are not just for new carers, they are also particularly helpful for people who are currently working as an adult care worker, but have the desire to expand their skills and knowledge of the care industry. This qualification is usually preferred to work as an adult care worker standard, and covers the knowledge and skills required to work in an adult care worker role. It will also enable you to work in a range of settings and supporting a variety of individuals with different needs.
