NVQ2 in Health & Social Care
NVQs are nationally recognised qualifications based on National Standards which are recognised throughout the UK. Recently the Government has passed legislation to ensure that all care sector employees are qualified to at least NVQ Level 2. NVQs are available at different levels which relate to the type of job you are doing. You can progress from one level to another providing you are in suitable employment and have the appropriate experience. There is opportunity to proceed to L3 (Supervisory Level), and to L4 (Managerial Level).
You will need to complete four mandatory units and two optional units. This is expected to take you six months.The
Mandatory Units are as follows:
* HSC 21 Communicate with, and complete records for individuals
* HSC 22 Support the Health and Safety of Yourself and Individuals
* HSC 23 Develop Your Knowledge and Practice
* HSC 24 Ensure your own Actions support the care, protection and well being of Individuals
Optional Units will be chosen by you and your assessor to fit in with your current job description.
Teaching and assessment
NVQs are vocational qualifications, which means that assessment is completed by a qualified Assessor in your place of work. You will be allocated an Assessor who will work alongside you to ensure that you produce evidence for your portfolio that meets each units specifications. However, there is some written work that needs to be undertaken to complete each unit and so you will need to come into College and attend workshops for delivery of the underpinning knowledge. In College you will receive all the teaching necessary, and you will also be given support to put together your portfolio of evidence.
Following your qualification at level 2 you will be eligible to work as a qualified Care Assistant. Your promotion to Team leader or Floor Leader would also make you eligible to enrol on the NVQ Level 3 Health and Social Care Programme..
