What opportunities will this course give me?

The population is aging, and the need for quality, compassionate end of life care providers is rising. Our Level 2 award in End of Life in Adult Social Care is therefore designed to support more individuals to further their personal and professional development, specifically within the care sector.

You will gain a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification and become competent in the management of pain and discomfort in different individuals. You will also feel confident and hold a strong understanding of care planning in end of life care, which you can then use as evidence when proving your competency to potential or current employers.

One of the most popular elements of this fully funded course is that all students have the option to learn at a time that suits them, with zero need to ever attend the College. This means the programme can fit around you and your lifestyle, whether you are in or out of employment.

For those hoping to progress onto a Health and Social Care Diploma, this qualification can also be used as proof of prior learning, supporting you as you expand your knowledge and skill set.

Why is this course for me?

By 2040, the number of people aged over 64 in Britain is estimated to grow from 9.5 million to 15 million. People are living much longer, and many are doing so with serious chronic illnesses. This brings with it an urgent need for more carers that can provide safe end of life care.

This course has been designed to support those people and their families. It is available fully funded to learners who are unemployed at any age over 19, or those currently employed and over 23. Eastleigh also provides full funding for those students who are between the ages of 19 and 23 and hold a level 2 certificate or higher.

You will discover the various problems associated with people nearing the end of life, and the pain management, support and quality of life steps that can be taken to mitigate the difficult implications of this complicated time.

For those currently working within the sector, you will gain a renewed sense of self-assurance in your role. For the individuals looking to step into care, these new skills will serve as evidence that you are well-equipped for the job.

There are few more fulfilling jobs than knowing you have made the difficult time of end of life as comfortable and pain-free as possible for an individual and their family.

How will my learning be enhanced?

This is an in-depth, multi-layered course. You will leave with a sound understanding of end of life care, including a proficient awareness of:

●How to work in end of life care
●Care planning in end of life care
●How to provide support to manage pain and discomfort
●End of life care and dementia
●The role of the care worker in time of death
●Loss and grief in end of life care

You will finish the programme with a nationally recognised certification and the opportunity to extend your understanding and qualifications further with higher education.
