Clear, step-by-step guidance on how to attain the Health and Social Care Level 3 Dementia Care Award and Certificate with an assessment-focussed approach. Written by a team with decades of practical experience of working in the sector, the Collins Health and Social Care Level 2 Dementia Care Award and Certificate sets out the core units by chapter in clear, easily navigable spreads - each of which is closely focused on what candidates need to know and do to pass the qualification. Content is delivered with step-by-step guidance for the candidate with ready-to-use assessment tasks for both knowledge and work-based evidence.
These are broken down into what is required for candidates to pass: what they need to know (knowledge) and what they need to do (competence).
These are linked directly to getting students the number of credits they need. There are also a number of engaging case studies to ensure that the books are rooted in real experiences of working in the health and social care sector, linking the theory to good practice.
