Certificates in Clinical Skills (3051)

Last Updated: 27 Aug 2015
The roles of healthcare assistants and domiciliary care workers, based in either community, residential or NHS settings, are under constant review. Increasingly these workers will be required to undertake more basic clinical tasks when they support service users in their nursing homes, supported living communities and in their own homes.
With a growing elderly population and and expected increased demand for services to work more collaboratively in health and social care to support the basic clinical needs of service users, workers in health, social care and domiciliary services will need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to undertake clinical tasks to support other registered healthcare professionals.
The level 2 and 3 Certificates in Clinical Skills have been designed to support the upskilling of this workforce. We have worked directly with NHS Trusts, Domiciliary Care Agencies and independent care providers. We have the endorsement of the Taunton Deane Federation of General Practices ( Somerset).
These qualifications are aimed at learners working in health, social care and domiciliary care who want to extend their knowledge and skills to support those in receipt of care. Employers in these sectors will be interested in this qualification as they can use it to upskills their workforce.
