What opportunities will this course give me?

There is estimated to be over 4 million people currently living with Diabetes in the UK, with 1 in 11 of the worlds population living with the disease. These numbers are enormous, and bring with it a vital need for well-informed care and better management for those with the condition.

Our fully funded Level 2 award in Care and Management of Diabetes teaches students about the various forms and causes of diabetes. Students will leave with a nationally recognised qualification, which will stand as clear evidence to employers of your competency and in-depth knowledge of this wide-spread illness.

The course will further both your personal and professional development, giving you the tools to provide better preventative care by being able to succinctly identify the early stages of diabetes.

Plus, for those hoping to progress onto a Health and Social Care Diploma, the programme gives you a strong base to build your knowledge and proof of your prior learning.

Why is this course for me?

The chances are high that all of us will know someone with Diabetes. The course is therefore built to deliver all the essential knowledge needed to support these people and give them the best care possible.

The cases of Diabetes are only rising. It is becoming more and more crucial that - as a society - we fully appreciate the steps we can take to prevent and delay the onset of this chronic disease, or to treat it in a comprehensive way once an individual already has it.

Which is precisely what this course is about. It is particularly ideal for those already working in a care environment as the programme is flexible and designed around your schedule and needs. Funding is available for students who are unemployed and 19 or over, as well as those in employment and 23+. Eastleigh also provides full funding for any learners aged 19-23 who already hold a level 2 award or higher.

Throughout the course, you will build your understanding of:

●the different types of diabetes and how they can occur
●How the onset of Type 2 diabetes can be delayed with lifestyle changes
●Diabetes diagnosis and initial care
●Ongoing care and treatment of diabetes to control blood sugar levels.

There will never be any need for students to attend College, meaning you can work on your own timeframe and in a way that fits in with your lifestyle.

How will my learning be enhanced?

Once you have successfully gained our Level 2 qualification, you will have a substantial and robust knowledge of:

●Understanding of Diabetes
●Understanding and being able to support with the early intervention of type 2 Diabetes
●Understanding of the initial care of Diabetes
●Understanding of the treatment and management of Diabetes

The course is a perfect springboard to move onto further education; you will be advised by our team of passionate, dedicated professionals on the best next step for your onwards journey.
