The City & Guilds Level 2 Award in the Prevention and Control of Infection consists of three core units:
- The principles of infection prevention and control
- Causes and spread of infection
- Cleaning, decontamination and waste management
Assessment is by an assignment for each of these units.
There are no set delivery methods so you can devise your own programme based on the course syllabus.
In order to offer the Award in the Prevention and Control of Infection, you will need suitably qualified staff to carry out training and assessment.
You will also need suitable facilities to carry out the required training to enable learners to achieve industry standards.
To find all the resource requirements, download the qualification handbook from the centre documents section.
This qualification is best suited to people already working in health or social care, or who are seeking to start a career in these sectors, though anyone can undertake this qualification.
