Course description

About the Level 4 Caring for Older People Certificate

Currently, the UK has an ageing population. This means we are going to need more qualified and skilled carers on hand to look after our elderly. This Level 4 distance learning course has been designed with this in mind. Students who study the qualification with Stonebridge College will gain a thorough understanding of how best to care for old people.

Over the duration of the course, students will study seven modules. These modules will cover everything from the physiology of aging to holistic care methods. The course will also examine relevant government policy and analyse how these regulations affect the elderly community. Altogether the material will take approximately 200 hours to complete.
