This qualification aims to help you identify, develop and formally recognise your knowledge and skills surrounding the care of patients, friends and families during this sensitive and emotionally demanding time of life, and is ideal if you are already working in, or intending to work within, the healthcare or social care sector.

Unit 4: End of life care and dementia

Unit 5: Understanding the role of the care worker in time of death

Within this unit you will explore the role of a care worker around the time of death of an individual. Focusing primarily on how to support an individual, how to care for a deceased individual and existing legislation around this subject are all examined in this module.

Unit 6: Understand loss and grief in end of life care

Within this unit you will consider the complex nature of loss and grief, gaining an understanding of how to support people following bereavement and how to best manage their feelings of loss and grief.

You will be assessed throughout your study by a series of assessment questions which are built into the course. Your answers are automatically saved and are available for you to revise and edit at any point before submission. You submit your assessment answers to your Tutor for marking, who will give you feedback on each question.
No. The communication you and your staff have with a Tutor or Learning Support Advisor will be via telephone, email or through The Skills Network’s online system, EQUAL.
If you do not pass an assessment, don’t worry. Once your Tutor has marked your work, you will receive an email instructing you to log into the system. If your result is ‘Refer’ this means your Tutor has highlighted some areas which need more attention in order for you to pass. You will then be able to re-attempt and re-submit the questions you didn’t pass first time round.
No. There are no maximum or minimum word counts for the assessments. It is important that you demonstrate to your Tutor that you have fully understood the question and applied your knowledge to each answer in a logical way. If your Tutor feels that an answer needs a little more detail, they will point this out in your feedback and you will be able to go back to the answer and rework it until you pass.
Your certificate will take between eight and twelve weeks to arrive. Once you have completed the course and submitted your final piece of work, your assessments will be marked and your work will go through an external quality assurance process. Once this process is complete, we send your certificate to you as soon as possible. If you require a confirmation of your achievement while you await your certificate, please contact us and we can send you a formal letter of achievement.

Learners are able to select from paper-based learning resources and paper-based assessment books which should be returned in the post on completion.

Learners can see which assessment methods are available on each course page throughout the website.
