Course Contents

The course is made up of four units of equal weighting:

RO21: Essential values of care for use with individuals in care settings

To examine how health, social care and early years workers, and care services, can support individuals’ rights, value their diversity and provide them with equal opportunities in order to meet their needs. You will learn about different types of discrimination and current legislation that promotes anti-discriminatory practice.

RO22: Communicating and working with individuals in health, social care and early years settings

To learn about the different types of communication skills that care practitioners use, as well as the reasons why they are important. You will also learn about the barriers to communication that practitioners may face and the different techniques that can be used to overcome these. You will have the opportunity to practically demonstrate effective communication skills in a health, social care or early years setting.

RO25: Understanding life stages

This unit examines the life stages from 5 to 65 years, through childhood, adolescence and adulthood. You will look at the changes associated with the development from childhood to adulthood and the factors that can influence this development.

RO29: Understanding the nutrients needed for good health

You will learn about the importance  of diet throughout the life stages, giving you the knowledge and skills to enable you to make choices that will affect your body throughout your lives. What we eat is often determined by a considerable number of factors, such as work-life balance, finance, where we live, food preparation skills, our health and religion. 

The course is assessed through a mix of internally assessed assignments (worth 75% of the final grade) and an externally assessed written examination (worth 25% of the final grade).
