Course description

The Understanding Substance Misuse (RQF) Level 3 Course leads to a fully accredited qualification and is designed to introduce the student to a variety of areas related to the use and misuse of a wide range of drugs. This Understanding Substance Misuse RQF qualification helps to develop increased understanding of these issues and the possible responses and interventions.

The programme raises an opportunity for personal development and occupational competence in an area identified by government policy as one requiring special attention. The overall Governments policy is laid out in "Drug Strategy 2010 Reducing Demand, Restricting Supply, Building Recovery: Supporting people to live a drug-free life.". This programme should contribute to the strategy through an educational model.

This course in particular is widely used to train drugs and alcohol workers, as well as generic professionals serving young and/or vulnerable people, to support them in achieving their DANOS competences. Mapping to the DANOS competences has shown that this programme covers a broad range of relevant DANOS units. The course provides also comprehensive "underpinning knowledge for the substance misuse units of the NVQ and SVQ Level 3 Health and Social Care.

The qualification has been mapped to the Drugs and Alcohol National Occupational Standards (DANOS) and the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework.   On successful completion of this course students will receive an accredited Level 3 Certificate Qualification.
